Entrepreneurship: Innovations in Business and Not-for-Profit

This course is also offered as INDS 590

The course will discuss how entrepreneurship is a laudable calling and why it is an acceptable vocation for Christians. It highlights the characteristics of the various aspects of a start-up business, not-for-profits or social enterprises and the challenges of starting a new enterprise or organization.

Topics will include the differences between western and Asian businesses, the need for innovation in business, not-for-profit and social enterprises, the idea of business as mission including the relationship between profit and non-profit businesses that are created to help the poor and serve a social purpose, the brokenness of the business system, and coping with various ethical standards across the globe.

This course does not teach about the mechanics of starting a business/not-for-profit/social enterprise or the techniques to run these organizations better. Our aim is to provide a framework through which you will think deeper about businesses and non-profits, in relation to your Christian faith and entrepreneurial aspirations.

This course will draw on guest lecturers.
