I am looking for B-schools that will give me academic as well as practical exposure in 'Social Entrepreneurship', 'Marketing' and 'Pro-Poor Tourism'.

Please let me know the best schools where I can probably pursue my interests.

Thank you.

Hi Anup,

A lengthy article on Poets & Quants covers this topic and I think would be very helpful: https://poetsandquants.com/2010/08/13/so ... -programs/

You may also want to consider a joint degree with a policy school like HKS, SAIS, SIPA, Woodrow Wilson, etc.

Best of luck with your process!

Can't say I'm too familiar with "Pro-Poor Tourism," but in terms of entrepreneurship, look no further than Babson College in Boston. One of the best business schools in the area with a supreme reputation for their entrepreneurial education. Best of luck to you in your search!

When I read Social Entrepreneurship and Marketing, I immediately think Kellogg and Yale SOM.
