COMM3030 Social Entrepreneurship Practicum is a Work Integrated Learning (WIL) course designed to integrate theory with experiential practice and involve authentic and purposeful engagement with partner organisations. It enables undergraduate students to develop professional skills while working in a team on a real social entrepreneurship project.
Students work with partners from industry, social enterprises, not-for-profits and foundations to develop and conduct a variety of applied projects in different areas of social entrepreneurship. In doing so, they have the opportunity to develop their professional skills, including critical thinking, communication, teamwork, research, innovation and creativity, entrepreneurship, leadership and many others.
In each teaching session, projects may be offered from the following fields:
- Social entrepreneurship and social innovation
- Impact investing
- Business and human rights
- Corporate social responsibility
- Pro bono and volunteering
- Measuring social impact
- Collective impact
- Social finance
- Other related fields
Students may be involved in business plan development, research and policy work, financial modelling, impact investment deal sourcing and due diligence, marketing, writing, advocacy, advising, strategising and related activities. Students will critically analyse the role of social entrepreneurs, as well as businesses, foundations, not-for-profits and investors.
