    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    After hearing from speakers like Tom Szaky, CEO and founder of TerraCycle, and other business men and women who found a way to maximize their reach of impact by attempting to solve social issues with a business mindset, I became interested in learning about the ways businesses can be successful solving the issues that our government and non-profits have been unable to. It really opened me up to the possibilities of business.

    Course highlights:

    As part of the Social Impact curriculum, every freshman in NYU Stern takes Business and Its Publics, a class that revealed the benefits of combining a for-profit model with a social cause. Through a combination of lectures and small group discussions, I began learning about an entirely new side of business that I was not aware of before. The role of a corporation was to make money for its shareholders and maximize profits while the government and non-profits dealt with fixing the social issues of our world, or so I thought. During the course, students had to choose a social issue and come up with a business-driven solution, detailing the ways in which its stakeholders would be affected and analyzing the financial aspects of it on all fronts. I focused on gentrification and the problem it posed for local mom and pops stores as well as historical residents.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the newspaper every day and be prepared to offer critical analysis in class!
