Leadership for Social Good Information Session
The Leadership for Social Good Study Abroad Program in Central and Eastern Europe offers interested students the opportunity to gain insight into global civil society, learn about the challenges of creating and leading effective and sustainable social enterprises, and make a positive impact by working closely with a non-profit organization in Budapest, Hungary.
We offer 12 MGT credits that qualify for the Leadership Minor (business track), including the capstone course of the minor in the form of a hands-on project with a nonprofit organization in Budapest.
During the 12-week program (10 weeks abroad), students earn 12 management credits through lectures, case studies, readings, guest speakers, and direct engagement with a non-profit organization. Participants explore and impact several of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Through curricular and experiential offerings, students build their understanding of social entrepreneurship's realities and the leadership it takes to develop strong civil societies.
The Central and Eastern Europe experience will develop students’ abilities to contribute positively to organizations dedicated to creating social value and addressing the needs of society. Whether a student's plans involve starting or working for a non-profit, a social business, or a for-profit company, this program will provide them with theoretical and hands-on knowledge of the international social sector.
