Created in December 2008, it seeks to promote social business by an action that is threefold:
TEACHING: Training a new generation of managers, aware of societal challenges and who aspire to be part of the solution, regardless of their professional activity;
RESEARCH: Developing quality research on strategic innovation in societal fields on the theme of social business, and the ways in which business can fight poverty;
ACTION RESEARCH: Contributing to an inclusive economy, in France and in other developed countries as well as in developing countries. This initiative brings together HEC academics, large firms, government members and heads of the non-profit organizations with the objective of alleviating poverty through business.
This Chair is co-presided by Professor Muhammad Yunus and Martin Hirsch, and receives financial support from
