Social Sector Solutions
Social Sector Solutions (EW/MBA 292S-1) is a 15 week strategy consultation offered to 8-10 select social sector organizations by the Center for Social Sector Leadership at the Haas School of Business, UC Berkeley. Social Sector Solutions helps social sector clients succeed with strategic and entrepreneurial ventures that leverage the background and skillset of Haas MBA students. The projects are modeled on management consulting frameworks, deliverables, and team composition.
Who is involved: A partnership with professional management consulting firm McKinsey & Company, this experiential learning course is co-taught by Joe Dougherty, Haas Faculty and Director at Dalberg, and Nora Silver, Faculty Director and Adjunct Professor of the Center for Social Sector Leadership.
How it works: Teams of five MBAs and other students, coached by a McKinsey consultant, work with the social sector client to tackle a key strategic question for the organization.
