Transform yourself & the world

"There is no passion to be found playing small—in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living." – Nelson Mandela

This highly interactive, award-winning program tackles nothing less than helping you identify your hopes, dreams, and plans for transforming yourself and the world.

Under the leadership of Dr. Anke Wessels, you'll learn the fundamental principles for solving problems, fostering innovation, and creating change—and you'll then apply this knowledge to your own social venture.

Recognized as one of the 10 best social entrepreneurship courses in the country, this popular offering has won several awards from the Ashoka Foundation, a global association of the world's leading social entrepreneurs.

It is offered through the Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management, part of Cornell's SC Johnson College of Business, and is affiliated with the university-wide Entrepreneurship@Cornell program.

Note: The application for this program requires two additional essays.
