Innovation and Social Entrepreneurship
The Nebraska Wesleyan University Leadership Institute offers Certificate programs at the graduate and undergraduate level for individuals seeking advanced education in organizational and professional leadership (offered for credit or not-for-credit).
Certificates run throughout the academic year and during the summer in eight-week sessions that meet one night per week. Students who complete the Certificates for credit will earn 12 credit hours at Nebraska Wesleyan, and an official diploma acknowledging completion of the Certificate program. Some of the graduate-level courses can be applied to Nebraska Wesleyan’s MBA program. Students pursuing these certificates for credit, who meet the admissions requirements for the MBA, are automatically accepted into the MBA and may apply these courses to the program at any time.

Social Entrepreneurship is an intense introduction and immersion into the development and implementation of social entrepreneur enterprises. We will introduce students into the development of managing and expanding social entrepreneurial projects/enterprises.
This course invites students to explore the mindset of creativity and innovation with the application of creativity and innovation into the organizational and the entrepreneurial process. We will explore a variety of ways for students to increase their creativity and innovation in their professional roles. We will study companies which are creative and innovative and we will study companies who failed to be innovative and creative.
