Postgraduate Certificate in Social Entrepreneurship and Innovation
This course is designed as a graduate level programme and all applicants must possess either B.Sc. or HND or equivalent professional proficiencies from any discipline or specialization.
The underlying philosophy of this programme is that all individuals who are motivated to be social entrepreneurs may realize that there are more options open to them and that they can become even more effective through formal exposures in a collaborative and educational setting of a theoretical approach to social entrepreneurship. This also offers them a range of opportunities, tools and strategies to bring to bear in their own work and their support for other people’s work.
This course presents an alternative approach to community development by advocating the adoption of innovative and valuable solutions (consisting of market mechanisms) in addressing social problems that have not been satisfactorily resolved by both public and private sector corporations through either their legislated establishment or Corporate Social Responsibility.
Delivered as a blended (face-to-face and online classes) course over a twelve weeks period, the Postgraduate Certificate in Social Entrepreneurship and Innovation explores the relevance of social entrepreneurship in Nigerian context and the practical application of this growing field in the different sectors of the economy given the peculiarity of the emerging markets, vast economy and huge population of Nigeria.
The programme adopts a multi-disciplinary approach to present the concepts, practices and challenges of social entrepreneurship and enables students to better appreciate the potentials of business principles in addressing social problems such as poverty, marginalization, poor quality education, power shortage, systemic corruption, conflicts, political inequality and a host of others.
