Overview

This business and management course, taught by Harvard Business School professor Tarun Khanna, takes an inter-disciplinary approach to understanding and solving complex social problems. You will learn about prior attempts to address these problems, identify points of opportunity for smart entrepreneurial efforts, and propose and develop your own creative solutions.

The focus of this course is on individual agency—what can you do to address a defined problem? While we will use the lens of health to explore entrepreneurial opportunities, you will learn how both problems and solutions are inevitably of a multi-disciplinary nature, and we will draw on a range of sectors and fields of study.

Ilaria completed this course, spending 6 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be easy.
They talked about India for almonst all the course. It was boring. I am sure a person wants to know everything in "general" and he/she does not want to hear so many examples about India, South Asia, Indian doctors etc

by Minhaz is taking this course right now, spending 3 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be very easy.
Good course primarily aimed at India. Some good ideas and examples. But I found the self assessment grading criteria very stupid.
