The field of Social Entrepreneurship which has grown very rapidly in recent years, leveraging knowledge of business  management  and  entrepreneurial  skills  to solve problems  related  of  society  and  the  environment.  The  major  reasons  are  failure  or  withdrawal of  state  and/or  market  to  deliver  the  needed  service to  the citizen  especially  the  poor  and  marginalised groups.  Some  changes  are  aligned  with  the  global politico-economic  developments  and  seem  to  be  irreversible. The need  is  to  develop  fresh  perspectives which  are  contextually  relevant  and  also  capable  to deliver  the  needed  services. We  need  trained  professionals  who  can take  leadership  in  such  situations. The  new  models  to  be  designed  by  them  should  be capable  of  ensuring  sustainable  development.  The Masters of arts   in social entrepreneurship   has been  developing  young  entrepreneurial  talent  pool to become ‘change agents’.

The objectives of the Master of Arts (Social Entrepreneurship) (MASE) programme are to:

  • develop individuals as entrepreneurs with a focus on social entrepreneurship;
  • enable  budding  and  practicing  social  entrepreneurs to solve social problems;
  • create  an  environment  for  dialogue,  discussion and  creation  of  a  research  base,  for  developing the domain of knowledge in social entrepreneurship,  for  sharing among  interest  groups,  and  to enable  practitioners  in  enhancing  effectiveness of their operations.


The  programme  covers  an  overview  of  economics, polity  and  sociology,  innovative  problem  solving, venture  creation,  business  and  organisational  management, and  leadership  linking,  with  benefits  to stakeholders.  Distinctive  features  of  the  curriculum are  inductive  pedagogy,  blending  classroom  teaching   and   experiential  learning   through   fieldwork, problem-solving  assignments  on  social  problems  at individual  and  group  levels,  and  meeting  and  interacting  with  social  and  business entrepreneurs.  The programme is primarily targeted toward developing entrepreneurial  skills. There  are  three  major  dimensions  and  components  of  this  programme: (i)  social context, (ii) entrepreneurship skills, and (iii) management tools.

A  designed  mix  of  all  the  three  in  each  Semester meets the overall objectives of the programme. The semester-wise distribution is as follows:

The  entrepreneurial  domain  is  predominantly  based on  ‘effectual’  logic,  whereas  managerial  domain  is ‘causal’.    The  MASE  programme  focuses  on ‘effectual logic’ during the initial period, and gradually exposes the  students  to ‘causal  logic’  at  a  later  stage. The  students  will  be  allowed  to  understand  and  experience both  and take  a  creative  decision  to  decide  to  adopt one or a mix of both.

The programme design will take care of the ‘life cycle approach’ of entrepreneurial processes — the creative phase, venture creation phase, and growth phase. The programme  curriculum  blends  cutting  edge  theory with field based experiential learnings to develop appropriate,  efficient,  effective  and  economically  sustainable entrepreneurial activities.

Classroom  teaching  focuses  on  self  and  group  learning  for  problem  solving  and  reflective  and  participative  learning.  This  programme  uses  multiple  evaluation components  such  as  mid  and  end  semester examination,  report  writing  and  presentation,  case development, business plan development, etc. Graduates  from  this programme  are  supported  to  initiate social ventures and become social entrepreneurs, and find employment in a range of organisations working with people in securing employment, wealth and human security.
