Are you interested in using the skills you’re learning in Eller classes to make your community a better place to live and work? Do you have a passion for affecting positive social impact in the world around you? If so, consider pursuing the undergraduate Eller Social Innovation (ESI) Certificate.
The ESI Certificate provides Eller undergraduate students with the opportunity to apply their knowledge and skill sets in real-world environments. Through experiential learning with nonprofit organizations and local small businesses, students engage with the local community, connect theory to practice, and enhance their employability.
Three courses (nine units total) must be completed from the following five courses:
- BNAD 455 Small Business Development and Consulting
- MGMT 380 Social Innovation Organizations
- MGMT 381 Management of Effective Nonprofit Organizations
- MGMT 382 Nonprofit Consulting

"After learning about Eller Social Innovation my junior year, I made it my goal to graduate with the certificate. For students like myself who are extremely conscientious, this certificate offers a way to connect with the nonprofit community here in Tucson, as well as teach us valuable techniques and knowledge that will help us in our careers, not just in the nonprofit sector, but the public sector also. I look forward to seeing this certificate on my transcript in May."
–Sarah Flaaen (Business Management, '17)
