Program on Social Enterprise

Harnessing business skills and markets to achieve social objectives.


The Program on Social Enterprise (PSE) supports faculty, students, alumni, and practitioners interested in exploring the ways in which business skills and market disciplines can be harnessed to most effectively and efficiently achieve social objectives. PSE explores work on nonprofit and public sector social entrepreneurship as well as initiatives in private sector social enterprise.

Our activities span courses, research, conferences, and publications.  In addition to these formal activities, PSE also serves as a focal point for social enterprise-related activities at Yale, facilitating, advising, and drawing connections among students, faculty, the Yale community, and the broader network in the US and internationally of interested practitioners and institutions.
