A business not only impacts its customers, suppliers, and employees, but also its surrounding community and society. What new models exist for amplifying social value, while maintaining profitability and stakeholder commitment? Come find out in this four-part course presented by the U.S. Department of State and Coursera.



Wayah Wiroto, GE Volunteers Chairman Indonesia


In this course we will explore the emergence of a new story about business. This new story locates business within a societal framework. Almost every business creates or destroys value for customers, suppliers, employees, communities and society, in addition to shareholders and other financiers. A number of new models of business can be built on this idea, including corporate responsibility, philanthropy, shared value, and sustainability. Profits and stakeholder value go together, and this course explains how. The final session explores the idea of how to become a stakeholder entrepreneur and create a business that makes money and makes the world a better place.

This online course is offered in partnership with the U.S. Department of State and Coursera. More information about this course can be found here.
