Social entrepreneurship education has grown dramatically from the
first class taught at Harvard University by Dr. Greg Dees in the late
1990's and the first European course at the University of Geneva in
Switzerland co-taught by Maximilian Martin and Pamela Hartigan from the Schwab Foundation in 2003. A number of exemplary programs and initiatives from around the globe have engaged students, faculty and administrators in this emerging field of study. As advocates for social entrepreneurs and social entrepreneurship education, staff at Ashoka have gathered a plethora of resources for both faculty new to the field of social entrepreneurship and seasoned veterans who blazed the trail in the early twenty first century.
The information in the handbook was obtained from program directors, faculty, university websites and course syllabi.
