Social Entrepreneurship Practicum (COMM5030) Bali is an exciting off-shore intensive Work Integrated Learning (WIL) course (6 UoC) offered by the UNSW Business School’s Centre for Social Impact for Master of Commerce students.
This practicum is designed to enable students to apply their business skills to assist social enterprises in Bali. The theme of the program is environmental sustainability, which has become a social and economic priority in Bali and for which social enterprises are playing an increasingly important role.
COMM5030 Bali provides an exceptional opportunity to apply theory and knowledge learned in the classroom to the practice of work within the social sector ecosystem of Bali. The course aims to develop entrepreneurial, critical thinking, creative leadership, and cross-cultural skills.
The course provides a unique opportunity to work directly with highly innovative social enterprises that draw upon business processes and market mechanisms to address environmental needs within the Balinese economy.
Students will work with the social enterprises at a highly successful co-working space to support the co-design of tangible solutions for the sustainability and scalability of the enterprises.
Throughout the program, students will also visit important local sites and learn about Balinese culture, social structures, economic systems and the politics of Indonesia (and Bali) more broadly.
Due to travel restrictions this course has been postponed until 2022.
The UNSW Business School is closely monitoring the current global COVID-19 pandemic and following the university’s approach to maintain a considered, evidence-based position guided at all times by public health experts and government advice.
