Visit of Prof. Patrick Mc Namara, July, 2016
JBS invites Dr. Patrick McNamara, Director of International Studies at University of Nebraska, Omaha, to conduct a social entrepreneurship course for MBA students. Mr. McNamara has been associated with JBS since 2011. His specialization lies in the areas of conflict resolution and negotiation, sustainable development, sustainable development, social entrepreneurship, and civic leadership.
Given all the problems our world faces —in teaching, technology, health care, or finance — we need more social entrepreneurs and change makers. Progress against these problems will be intolerably slow if only 3% to 5% of the world’s population thinks they can solve them. The objective of the course is to introduce JBS students to the field of social entrepreneurship so that they can alter the status quo and bring a change in the society. Also, the course focuses on promoting dialogue on key issues involved in social entrepreneurism and providing opportunities to students for personal and professional reflection.
