Think you have what it takes to change the world?
HESE builds, co-creates, and implements business models
to solve problems with, and for people from around the world.
The Humanitarian Engineering and Social Entrepreneurship (HESE) Program is a class-based program that engages students from all majors in solving impactful, interdisciplinary problems in developing contexts. We create and launch ventures that are culturally appropriate, self-sustainable, and life changing for millions of people – from product design to business model creation. Alongside the social enterprises, we work on original publishable research that strengthens ventures by ensuring they use an evidence-based and data-driven approach. The overarching goal is to deliver sustainable impact while preparing students for careers in social innovation and global sustainable development.
