The Development of Education for Social Entrepreneurship and Nonprofit Management: Diverging or Converging Paths?
Nonprofit Management & Leadership
Although nonprofit management education has developed within a variety of university settings to date, curricula content of these programs has converged over time. However, recent social entrepreneurship programming calls into question whether such convergence will continue. This article compares social entrepreneurship education programming in schools of public administration and policy, schools of business and management, and religiously oriented institutions and considers whether curricula among these groups will remain distinct. Possible scenarios include convergence toward the traditional nonprofit management education model, toward the new business school model of social entrepreneurship, toward new blended models, or continued bifurcation between traditional and business school models.
