Faculty includes both professors at the forefront of their academic fields and full-time practitioners in social enterprise who teach as adjuncts. Both are a vital resource for MBA students and graduates. Social enterprise faculty members expose students to new ideas, theory, and research, offer educational and career advice, and provide a starting point for networking with organizations relevant to social enterprise areas in the nonprofit, public, and business sectors.

Faculty members are involved in research projects, external working groups, conference and student club activities, and student organized study trips.
