    This business and management course, taught by Harvard Business School professor Tarun Khanna, takes an inter-disciplinary approach to understanding and solving complex social problems. You will learn about prior attempts to address these problems, identify points of opportunity for smart entrepreneurial efforts, and propose and develop your own creative solutions.

    The focus of this course is on individual agency—what can you do to address a defined problem? While we will use the lens of health to explore entrepreneurial opportunities, you will learn how both problems and solutions are inevitably of a multi-disciplinary nature, and we will draw on a range of sectors and fields of study.

    What you'll learn
    • An awareness of the opportunities for entrepreneurship in fast-growing emerging markets
    • An understanding of a conceptual framework for evaluating such opportunities
    • An appreciation of the types of problems that lend themselves to entrepreneurial solutions
    Taught by
    Tarun Khanna and Sue J. Goldie
