This class is designed to provide the participants with a viable pathway to understanding their role in making an enterprise more socially valuable in today's ever changing world. This course will explore the rising interest in practicing capitalism in order to benefit society as a whole.  In this class we will be tapping into the inherent feelings many students have that doing well and doing good in business is attainable.  The course will further explore potential business practices that are not only a force for doing good in society but lead to actually being socially and environmentally restorative.  Students will learn to identify their core passion and how to make that the centerpiece of their entrepreneurial path.  Students will identify the different purposes business have and evaluate their value to society utilizing a taxonomy of business structures from profit maximization to not for profit.  Students will evaluate what business structure is most favorable for their individual entrepreneurial path and will identify actual business practices that promote the thriving of the human spirit.
