The course is particularly relevant to policy-makers, senior managers and chief executives of social economy, community, public and third sector organisations.

This course offers advanced insights into social entrepreneurship and social innovation as drivers of not-for-profit, community-oriented enterprises.

The additional elective subject choices provide an opportunity to specialise more deeply in the not-for-profit and social enterprise fields, and further enhance students' management skills, professional practice, specialist knowledge and capabilities.
