About

This course specifically looks at how innovative people in China and the U.S. use business approaches to address poverty, environmental concerns, migrant education, caring for an aging population, urban unemployment, health care, orphan child welfare, women's rights, incarceration and other issues. This course explores China's social entrepreneurial landscape and similarities and differences between China and the U.S. In addition to classroom learning, students will engage in an internship at the Dandelion School, a middle school in Beijing that serves the city's large and expanding migrant population. By volunteering at the school, students gain first-hand knowledge of how one venture is attempting to address one of China's greatest social problems: migrant education.
