What’s coming up in Week 4
© Universitat Pompeu Fabra
During these three weeks we have learnt the difference between social economy and social enterprise.
Also, we know how to distinguish social enterprises from social businesses, according to Professor Yunus. We have stressed that the mission of these companies is to create a positive change in society, by addressing one or more identified social needs.
In relation to this, we have seen the importance of measuring the impact that these organizations have in society so that the managers can monitor to what extent the activity is helping to improve society.
See you next week!
