Karen Rands is joined by Dr. Laquita Blockson, Founding Faculty Director of Social Innovation Graduate Program, Masters in Social Innovation, at Agnes Scott College in Atlanta, GA to discuss how Social Innovation & Entrepreneurship works to solve society challenges with business solutions.
Through this Master of Arts program in Social Innovation, students learn to take business principles and adapt them to solve complex, real-world challenges to create a more socially just world. Students attain the knowledge and skills to become leading social innovators and change-makers within various industries and fields and learn to make informed decisions, influence policy, and affect positive change. Upon graduation, students are prepared to launch a social venture or to secure a management position within for-profit, government, and nonprofit sectors. As our world is plagued by real problems of poverty, environmental destruction, access to health care, hunger, racial conflict, affordable housing and on, it is encouraging to know leaders are being cultivated to turn innovation and entrepreneurship into economic opportunity to make positive change.
