The Ford Center is vigorously engaged in teaching at the Kellogg School of Management and is an important contributor to course work in the area of Social Enterprise. This program reflects the converging challenges that managers face today in business, government and nonprofit organizations regarding social enterprise management. Social Enterprise integrates the curricula of the former Business and its Social Environment (BASE) and Public/Nonprofit Management majors, encompassing those areas of study as well as ethics and values, corporate social responsibility and sustainability, and political economy.
To give students an in-depth research experience, the Ford Center offers various independent studies and research fellowships.
