Social Business: Odyssey of the Third Millennium
Can social objectives be achieved more efficiently and effectively by adopting a social business format that is sustainable?
The vision of Prof. Muhammad Yunus, Nobel Peace Prize winner, is that many global problems we face today can be solved through the creation of Social Business. This is a form of business that is mainly driven by a cause, rather than by traditional business school objectives such as profit maximization with minimal investment and cost reduction. The social business concept goes far beyond accomplishing personal or investor goals. It is focused on the human being and seeks to achieve one or more social objectives through a company.
