Social enterprise continued its push into the mainstream today as Glasgow Caledonian University and the Social Enterprise Academy announced Britain’s first MSc in Social Enterprise.

Starting in March 2011, the MSc is the only postgraduate degree in Scotland designed specifically for the growing social enterprise sector – a reflection of the its growing size and importance.

In partnership, Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) and the Social Enterprise Academy (SEA) aim to help third sector organisations learn techniques to develop not just as entrepreneurs but social entrepreneurs.

Students will study the role social enterprise can play in creating a sustainable economy in the 21st century by looking at ways the business model can provide social, economic, environmental and cultural change.

It aims to do this by combining the academic rigour of experts from GCU’s Business School with practical knowledge from the Academy’s lead tutors and speakers from the Social Enterprise world.

Neil McLean, Chief Executive of the Social Enterprise Academy said:  “This has been a very rewarding working partnership with our colleagues at Glasgow Caledonian University. They have consistently demonstrated their commitment to Social Enterprise on a number of fronts especially their work on micro-credit and their creation of the first professorship in Social Enterprise.  We look forward to delivering something excellent together!”
