Major Contribution to Social Sector

Set up the Social Enterprise Cell at School of Business Management, NMIMS, in 2005, which was upgraded to Center for Sustainability Management & Social Entrepreneurship in 2011. As a catalyst and innovator, the Center’s mission is to create a new generation of business leaders and social entrepreneurs who are knowledgeable about and are committed to create a sustainable society. The Center’s objectives serve as a bridge between academia, the corporate world and the civil society organizations. The research, as well as the teaching strengths combined with the experiential learning approach and guiding principles of the Center, connect sustainability focused knowledge and research to students, businesses and the civil society organizations.  

The Center’s work is spread over five broad areas: 

  1. Knowledge development and dissemination about the social sector in the MBA programme 
  2. MBA student’s involvement in the social sector through ‘We Care: Civic Engagement internships’
  3. Increasing Awareness of Social Entrepreneurship by developing field intervention activities 
  4. Offering Diploma/PTMBA programme in Social Entrepreneurship and Enterprise Training for Women. Both the programmes are offered at subsidized cost.
  5. Disaster Management Education

The Center’s work has made a huge impact on business, government as well as Corporate Sector.
