Social entrepreneurship is a unique approach to economic, social, and environmental challenges facing our society, and combines the passion of a social mission with the power of modern business to enact meaningful change. Historically, London has been a hub for international development work and non-profit organizations with social causes. Today, London is the world’s most multicultural city, and it is home to some of the world’s most prominent social powerhouses: The Young Foundation, Social Innovation Exchange, School for Social Entrepreneurs, and UnLtd, to name a few. 

Social entrepreneurship is inherently linked to FIE’s values of inclusivity, ethics and human rights, social and cultural engagement, and sustainability. SE @ FIE students will frame their experience with the British Life & Business course, where the topic of social entrepreneurship will be explored. SE @ FIE students will be able to apply their knowledge of British life and business to a social entrepreneurship-related internship, complemented by internship seminars, which enables students to consolidate and build on their experience of social entrepreneurship in London.
