This curriculum guide aims to give lecturers in higher education a summary of the social business market and arm them with the knowledge and abilities needed to address the social and environmental problems our communities are currently confronting. Social businesses are effective, cutting-edge business strategies that are upending conventional business methods. Moreover, social businesses work across many industries and are motivated by the tripartite bottom line of social, environmental, and fiscal factors. Through this curriculum guidance document lecturers will discover the distinctive qualities of social businesses, their different business strategies, and their effects on people and the environment.

Communities all over the globe are being transformed by social enterprises, which have surfaced as potent agents of positive social change. However, the research team for this project recognises that social business is not without difficulties and complexity. It takes resiliency, flexibility, and perseverance to overcome difficulties and succeed. The overall aim of this guide is to motivate and prepare the upcoming generation of social entrepreneurs in Ghana so they can take on these issues and build a more just and sustainable future.
