Course Summary

This course provides an overview and understanding of social innovation and approaches to address social, cultural, economic, and environmental challenges and opportunities. Social innovation is becoming central to the ambitions of the corporate and public sectors as well as the NGO/social sector, therefore the programme will examine social innovation within each sector as well as the pressing need to work in collaboration to tackle the 'wicked problems' the globe faces.

The Master of Studies (MSt) provides an open environment for critical dialogue. The aim is to be highly interactive with workshops, case studies, subject experts, and practitioners engaging in the discussion of key concepts, theories, frameworks, and emerging ideas for creating, developing, and enabling social innovation in the public, private and social sectors in the UK and internationally. In recognition of the fact that social innovation occurs across all sectors, the MSt is aimed at middle and senior level leaders in NGOs, public bodies and the private sector. Students form a key part of a strategy to engage with individuals and organisations working specifically to develop novel 'solutions' to deep-rooted problems of poverty and inequality in both rich and poor countries.
