The Master of Social Impact arms you with the skills you need to become an agent of sustainable change, through a social enterprise of your own or from inside the organisation you work for. Dig deep into the complex social, environmental and economic challenges facing business and society. Learn about using philanthropy to spur social innovation. And lead the way in a rapidly changing social economy and business environment.
Our social impact programs are taught through the Centre for Social Impact at Swinburne, part of an Australia-wide network devoted to improving the delivery of beneficial social impact through research, teaching and public debate.
You could be a manager in a non-profit organisation, or are seeking to be one. You might be a professional in a for-profit company wanting to engage with future trends in social innovation and corporate responsibility. Or, you are part of a consultancy growing your social impact capabilities. You could also be a policy maker or public manager interested in the social economy.
You will be equipped with the skills and knowledge to effectively take on leadership roles in non-profit and philanthropic organisations, government and social enterprises - as a manager, trustee, adviser, investor, fundraiser or social entrepreneur.
