Simon Healeas, deputy director of MBA programmes at Westminster, talks about how our students have been benefiting from the MBA social entrepreneurship module.

According to the Financial Times, more people are seeking meaning in what they do, exploring how their business ideas can benefit the environment or deprived communities. In an interview for the newspaper, Simon Healeas comments on how our MBA programmes have been fulfilling this demand.

Since 2010, our MBA participants go abroad to complete a social entrepreneurship module in Uganda and India, through partnerships with enterprises such as Arpan, an Indian charity fighting sexual abuse.

“These experiences challenge the way students think about what a profitable business strategy should be and shows them how to create solutions to the world’s issues,” says Simon Healeas.
