Social enterprise at Kellogg creates even more value

A new integrated curriculum at Kellogg reflects the converging challenges that today's managers face in the business, government and nonprofit arenas. The Social Enterprise at Kellogg (SEEK) offering provides students with "a coherent intellectual foundation that draws on many of our existing assets," said Dean Dipak C. Jain.

SEEK unites the Kellogg School's distinguished scholars in political economy with its renowned experts in various departments - from psychology to public policy and nonprofit management - who have a significant research interest in social enterprise.

The new curriculum replaces and integrates the Business and its Social Environment major and the Public/Nonprofit Management major. Professor Daniel Diermeier is directing the program in conjunction with faculty who teach in it.

Said Diermeier: "SEEK helps us implement Dean Jain's vision to create globally responsible business leaders. Traditionally, business schools have segmented areas that have to do with the social environment of business, dividing nonprofits, entrepreneurship, ethics and so forth. What we have learned is that these divisions are really not functional anymore."

SEEK also creates opportunities for collaboration among related Kellogg School research centers, including the Center for Nonprofit Management, the Ford Center for Global Citizenship and the Center for Business, Government and Society.
