The course is based on the work of Dr. Gavin Melles, who has studied social enterprise and innovation in India over the last 3 years.

Regional understanding is imperative for successful social enterprises.

"You can’t understand social enterprise in India or Vietnam or Australia or UK unless you understand the socio-cultural and institutional environment in which it operates," Dr. Melles says.

Dr. Melles has been awarded the Chingari Seed Grant from the Australia-India Institute. Along with the Centre for Social Initiative and Management (CSIM Chennai), Dr. Melles will conduct a study on measuring social impact in NGO and social enterprise using social accounting. The study will run alongside the two-week course.

Interested students can enroll in DDD20025 Design Study Tour (12.5 credit points)

Applications close 14th October 2016
