A collaboration between the Faculty of Business Administration, the School of Social Work, and the School of Music, Memorial University of Newfoundland's Centre for Social Enterprise acts as a catalyst to nurture social entrepreneurs, strengthen social enterprises and drive social innovation in Newfoundland and Labrador. The Centre's activities support teaching and learning in social enterprise, such as the University's Master of Business Administration in social enterprise and entrepreneurship; foster research to strengthen understanding of social entrepreneurship and the dynamics of social enterprises; and support growing social enterprises in our Province through social enterprise incubation.

The Centre works within the social entrepreneurial ecosystem to create linkages among students, faculty, community, and company leaders for networking and mentorship opportunities. It's a platform to support creative linkages between academic disciplines to nurture innovation in social entrepreneurship.
