NYU Reynolds is proud to announce three exciting spring 2013 classes in social entrepreneurship for students from across the university. Taught by true leaders in the field, these classes (based at NYU Wagner) provide a unique opportunity for students to learn practical and theoretical frameworks from social entrepreneurs who have proven their skills building successful social purpose ventures.

How can one innovate inside a large corporation or nonprofit institution? What are the ethics of profiting off the needy? The course will combine Professor Greenblatt’s on-the-ground experience as a “serial social entrepreneur,” Director of Products & Innovation at Criterion Ventures, and experience working with philanthropists, foundations, nonprofits, and entrepreneurs, with visits from leading social entrepreneurs across the sector.  See the full syllabus at

Mr. Hollender’s experience with sustainable business and the world of non-profit environmental organizations, such as co-chairing Greenpeace USA, shape his perspective. Combining his own experience with readings from other thought leaders and guest lecturers, the course will explore sustainability as a system that requires the integration of environmental considerations other key influences from population and policy to social equity, business strategy, consumer behavior, education and culture. See the full syllabus at

Finance for Social Entrepreneurs (UPADM-GP 801), taught by Russ Pomeranz, financial consultant and former COO/CFO of the Vera Institute of Justice, will provide an introduction to the financial concepts and tools, and an approach to analytical thinking that integrates managerial, programmatic and strategic considerations. Finance for Social Entrepreneurs is as much about story telling as it is about the underlying financial, managerial, and strategic concepts that are critical to mission achievement and financial success. Whether their vehicle is for profit, non-profit, hybrid, or government, all social entrepreneurs and innovators need to tell a credible operating financial story based on revenue streams, clarity and control of expenses, bottom lines and capital to thrive and grow in the short and long term.
