MSc Social Business and Microfinance

 

Social business is a cause driven business, which aims to impact on people or the planet, rather than for the accumulation of profits to shareholders or investors. While the benefits of a socially enterprising world are well documented, every social business journey is unique, and the impact of microfinance is still emerging.

Evolving this practice further, the MSc Social Business and Microfinance from Glasgow Caledonian University shares its home with the Yunus Centre for Social Business and Health – GCU’s world-leading research centre – and is delivered by the award-winning Glasgow School for Business and Society.
