YSB Launches Coursera Courses: Education For A World of Three Zeroes

YSB Launches Coursera Courses: Education For A World of Three Zeroes

May 6, 2021

“If we can imagine something, there is a good chance that it will happen. If we don’t imagine it, there is almost no chance of it happening” – Professor Muhammad Yunus

When Yunus Social Business started our journey to support social business entrepreneurs across the globe, we imagined creating a world of three zeroes. But we soon realised that support to social business entrepreneurs should go beyond just providing financial instruments.

To further  grow the social entrepreneurship movement, we are launching an online education programme with Coursera on the management of social businesses. The first specialisation on the strategy and finance for the lifecycle of a social business is live from today!

The content of the program is based on Yunus Social Business Bengaluru Funds and our partners’ experience of working with hundreds of social businesses. We have crystallised our varied learnings into tools and case studies to provide learners with an objective lens to solve various business problems.

Coursera is an affordable and wide reaching platform for audiences who otherwise would not be able to access traditional business education at universities. It boasts a collaborative approach to learning, which we believe is essential in the journey of any social business entrepreneur.

We also thank our partner for the finance program – Professor Gautam Kaul, who is a well-known MOOC teacher with over two million subscriptions.

The course Strategy and Finance for the lifecycle of a Social Business goes live on Coursera today. View it here.
