Nov 16, 2023
NYU Stern School of Business has a dynamic and well-recognized course of study focused on an undergraduate Social Impact Core. These courses are primarily designed and delivered within the Business and Society Program. We are currently recruiting a clinical faculty member with expertise in the areas of social entrepreneurship and/or the field of law and business to strengthen our community in those areas. The successful candidate would be expected to teach Social Entrepreneurship, an elective in the undergraduate and graduate programs, and/or Law, Business, and Society, which is a required course for junior-level undergraduate students.
Social Entrepreneurship Course Description
This course is an introductory course on the principles of social entrepreneurship and it is a required course for the Social Entrepreneurship Minor. Taught with a rich set of globally relevant case examples, the course defines the topic and offers context for how it fits into broader economics and management frameworks. In particular, it explores social entrepreneurship as a discipline that helps reverse morally indefensible inefficiencies (microeconomics lens) and the suffering of disadvantaged stakeholders (stakeholder theory lens). The course also introduces a variety of tools to help identify social sector problems and brainstorm solutions; introduces the concept of “corporate design,” and how businesses can be “designed” for purpose through unique types of ownership, charters (e.g. benefit corporations), and governance; and examines methods to measure impact.
Law, Business, and Society Course Description
This course is an introductory course that provides students who have no previous knowledge with a basic understanding of the American legal system. The instructor will present legal cases and hypotheticals from the perspective of multiple stakeholders while focusing on the connection between law, business, and society. The instructor will also demonstrate how laws may reflect societal norms, promote material well-being, and reflect economic/historical conditions. In addition, the instructor will illustrate the inherent difficulty in predicting exactly how laws will be applied.
The course consists of a common core of customized course readings drawn upon judicial decisions, statutes, scholarly works, and multimedia. This course emphasizes analytical writing of the type required in business and the written assignments are designed to help students learn how to engage in thorough analysis, address arguments made by both sides, and write, concisely, and convincingly.
