Students and faculty gathered together to recognize and commemorate the founder and Executive Director of the Global Center for Social Entrepreneurship, Jerry Hildebrand.
Running since summer 2009, the Global Center’s Social Entrepreneurship Certificate Program is an online program teaching enrollees everything there is to know about starting, running, or improving a social enterprise. Taught by practitioner and Professor Martín Burt, the three part course series is one of a kind. The material is valuable not only to current or aspiring social entrepreneurs, but to anyone seeking to learn the newest, most effective, and valuable business skills and techniques.
On Feb. 16, 2012 one of the most important people in the world turned 70 years old. He is not a household name, but the ripples of his influence have been felt across the globe. His name is Jerry Hildebrand, and he is one of the most energetic, relentless and inspiring people the world has ever known.
