I would like to update one issue of MGS4999 W01, W02 online class participation.

I am actively participating in the DQ discussions for those courses at Blackboard system. 

But, as you know, I am using Google Classroom for MGS4999 W01, 02 classes for Assignment participation because the pre-defined course structure was not compatible with my teaching. 

You can see my google classrooms: 

MGS4999 W01: https://classroom.google.com/w/NTIzOTg5MTYyNjZa/t/all

MGS4999 W02: https://classroom.google.com/w/NTIzOTY3MzczODFa/t/all

At the google classroom, I proactively communicate, give feedback, and participate in interactions like below. 

I also use WeChat Groups to encourage my students to participate in learning. 

If you take all things together, my teaching of MGS4999 classes would be the most participative classes in WKU online. WKU online can make a 'real' survey to students rather than checking our Blackboard. 

Please take my clarification descriptions, and use my case to justify CBPM faculty's relatively low participation.

WHITE PAPER: 2020 Spring WKU CBPM's Online Course Development in Responding to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) epidemic in China.

Jan. 21, 2020,

A business professor (Dr. Jeonghwan Jerry Choi) at WKU CBPM got a strange message from his friend at the University of Kansas (USA) via Facebook. The message told that a strange virus outbroke in Wuhan, China. And the situation was highly incremental.  The professor prepared 100 medical masks to bring back when he returned to school in Feb. 07, 2020. 

 

Jan. 27, 2020,

WKU HR announced that 2020 Spring Semester would be postponed until Feb. 22, 2020 because of 2019 Nobel Coronavirus epidemic in Wuhan, China. 

 

Jan. 31, 2020: Donation for Wenzhou, China from International Faculty Members

WKU CBPM's international faculty members donate Medical Masks, Protecting Cloths, Medical Gloves, and Medical Goggles to Wenzhou City and Wenzhou-Kean University from South Korea (Dr. Choi), Philippines (Dr. Candy Chiu), Thailand (Dr. Somkiat) to show the global solidarity. These global donation activities are coordinated by Wenzhou-Kean Foundation (Mr. Meng Jun and Ms. Jennifer Lu) and WKU CBPM Office (Ms. Wang Yang).

WKU HR announced that "Please DO NOT return to Wenzhou before March 01, 2020" because of the incremental situation of the Coronavirus in Wenzhou, Zhejiang area. 

 

Updated Academic Calendar of WKU 2020 Spring  (retrieved in Feb,, 11, 2020:  http://www.wku.edu.cn/en/academics/academic-calendar/)

 

Feb. 04, 2020

In responding to the situation, Kean USA and WKU setup several principles. (Feb. 04, 2020: Brief from WKU CBPM Dean Dr. Cao Jiang) 

1. Student and faculty health and security come first. Currently, we have a government mandate not to start the spring semester by 3/1. The actual start will be determined by Kean USA pending the virus situation.

2. At the meantime we must serve our students, particularly graduating seniors who need to start to work or attend graduate school in June. 

3. As such we must prepare to start online delivery on Feb 24, and ready to deliver 5 weeks' worth of content (Mar. 27, 2020) in the next three weeks, and hope the epidemic is under control so we can resume in-classroom teaching at the earliest possible time. Otherwise, we have to be ready for full-semester online delivery.

4. Many business courses already have Blackboard (BB) online modules ready to go, while others need to be developed as we go. All faculty will receive extensive BB training. 

5. At the meantime, please do NOT send students traditional syllabi until future communications from Eric, because of their difference with online version syllabi. 

 

Feb. 10, 2020

Kean Online Team organized the "Kick-off meeting" Monday, Feb. 10th @ 8AM (EST) to help Online course developers to initiate online course development to ensure world-class education in the epidemic situation in WKU.

These questions were raised (by Dr. Jerry Choi)

1. Instructors do not have any Grading authority at all? Why not?

2. I still do not understand why students and instructors must suffer from totally complicated DQ writing and grading. Can instructors have the full authority of grading? 

3. Unavailable students must be contacted by instructor, Not administrators? Why? 

4. Should we make two (2 hours) Live session per Unit? What is that mean? 

5. Instructors have or do not have the Class pace (speed) management or not? 

Should we complete each Units according to Kean Online Team? 

Then, what is the schedule of Unit completion?

더보기

For your information this email was just sent to all WKU students.  It is important that you understand how student concerns are being addressed.

____________________________________________________________________

Dear WKU Students,

We wanted to clarify some concerns that some of you have expressed.  They are valid concerns and we are glad for the opportunity to address them. 

Time Zone

All graded activities including discussions and assignments will go by US EST as this is how Blackboard is configured. This means that an assignment that is due Sunday at 11:59pm US EST this would equate to Monday at 12:59pm Beijing Time.  If your first post to the unit’s discussion question is due by Tuesday at 11:59pm US EST this equates to Wednesday 12:59pm.  There is a 13 hour difference.

Discussion Boards and Rubric

Discussions are very important learning activities in an online course.  They represent conversations that would happen in a typical face to face course.  In order to make the conversations as beneficial as possible so that everyone can learn from each other there are several important guidelines.  To earn full credit for work inside of the discussions in each unit the following elements are considered:

  1. Did the student post his/her initial response to the discussion question (DQ) by the second day of the unit which for Unit 1 is Tuesday at 11:59pm US EST.  The discussions are not tied to the live sessions.  You can start your responses before the live session happens. Please consult the Course Dates document in Course Information which lets you know what is due on every day of the semester for exact dates. (Timeliness)
  2. Was the student response to the initial question posted by the faculty member a good response?  Did it answer the questions? Did the student support their arguments with facts found in the readings or elsewhere? This shows the faculty member that you have been really thinking about the topics.  Please note that in most cases there is no right or wrong.  This is more about effort.  (Quality) 
  3. Did the student participate fully in the conversations?  Conversations are meant to happen throughout the entire duration of the unit.  For Unit 1 this is seven days from Monday to Sunday.  It is up the student to decide which days he/she will participate on as long as the first post is done by the second day of the unit.   For example a student can post on Tuesday (the initial response) and Wednesday and Friday.  Another example is a student posts the initial response on Monday but interacts with others on Saturday and Sunday.    Students have flexibility on what days they post.  (Frequency)
  4. Did the student respond to five peers/the instructors during the unit? Discussions are meant to be highly interactive.  This is where you can show what you know and learn from each other including the faculty.  You are required to respond to five peers throughout the unit.  Remember these are conversations similar to what you would have as if you were in person.  You are simply talking (writing) to each other.  (Interactivity)


Each discussion question is worth 15 points per week and you will be evaluated based upon the factors noted above.  You should work with your faculty member to make sure that you are on track with meeting these requirements.  The rubric (assessment criteria) that is being used is attached. 

Assignments

In each online course you will find at least one assignment per unit.  You should begin working on your assignment(s) as soon as the units open.  Your assignments are not connected to when the Live Sessions happen.  Communicate with your individual course faculty member regarding assignment requirements and grading related issues.

Workload

Online courses are built to be equivalent to face to face courses in terms of workload.  They have the same learning objectives and required number of hours associated them.  Your faculty built your courses taking these factors into consideration.

For a three credit course, there are three hours of work within Blackboard per unit.  This is equivalent to the three hours that you spend inside of a classroom.  How this equates in Blackboard is 1 hour for the Live Session, 1.5 hours for discussions (DQs) and .5 hours for navigation (moving around the unit). 

In a typical face to face students are recommended to spend 2-3 hours for every credit taken doing things like homework and readings.  For a three credit course this means 6-9 hours of work outside of the classroom.  In our online courses we expect the same. 

So when you take into account what happens inside of Blackboard and outside of Blackboard this means 9-12 hours per unit of work is to be completed.  For some students it could be less and for some it could mean more.  This is a range. 

Time Management

Based upon the amount of hours you need to spend in your courses and the work you have to complete Time Management is super important for your success.  There is no room for waiting until the last minute to complete any of the planned activities.   It is important for you to stay ahead of your work and if you need assistance from your faculty member ask for it right away.  Your faculty member might not know you are struggling until you tell them.  Don’t wait until the last minute in a unit to express your concerns.  Make sure to begin your work in a unit as soon as it starts.

Contacting Faculty

Your faculty understand the importance of communicating with you.  In each course there are several ways for you to reach them including “Ask the Instructor” for general questions, “Messages” for private questions and “Live Sessions”.  Faculty members have been asked to respond to your concerns within 24 hours.  They need to be your first point of contact on anything related to your coursework.

If you feel that you are not getting the responses you need to continue your work and meet your deadlines then you should reach out to your Dean.   Below is a listing of those Deans who have been given access to your courses, for monitoring and assessment, for you to contact if this happens:

Dean Cao Jiang, College of Business and Public Management

Dean Raquel Stuart, College of Liberal Arts

Dean Larry Brown, College Science and Technology

Dean David Mohney, Michael Graves College, Architecture

Associate Dean Rose Gonnella, Michael Graves College, Design

Live Sessions/Connectivity

In each unit of the course your faculty member will be providing a 1 hour live session.  While attending the live session is suggested it is not required because it is recorded.  We recognize that many students are taking multiples courses and this could create conflicts.  It is up the student which live session he/she will/can attend.  Attendance during these live session is not taken and it does not factor in the grades.  If you have connectivity issues during the session you rest easy knowing that your session has been recorded.  Your faculty member will provide for you in the announcements a link to the sessions as they have been recorded. 

Grading

Grading will not happen until the unit it over.  The first unit ends on Sunday March 1st so do not expect grades right away. Grading for each unit needs to be completed by the faculty five days after the unit has ended.  Keep in touch with your faculty member via Messages regarding any grading issues you have about your grades.

 

We realize that online learning in such a structured environment is new to many of you.   We encourage you to work with your faculty to help you progress through your courses.  In the meantime we will continue to listen to your concerns and provide any explanations necessary so that you can be successful.  Your faculty will also be provided with a copy of this letter so that they are aware of what you have been told. 

We wish you a great semester!

This issue was started when Unit 16 course structure was changed to Unit 15 structure in Mar. 07.

You can see the below Email. 

 

WKU online team then requested for changing Unit 14 and 15 only like this guide.

 

However, I am suggesting "Adjustment" of Unit 9, 10, 11, 12 ,13, 14 ,15 as attached file in this Email because I need to comply the grading policy as we had. 

 

According to the original plan, we must have 1000 scores from 16 DQs and 16 AS as below.  

 

In order to meet the well-distributed 1000 score demand, I must change grading scores (DQ and AS) from Unit 9 as I am suggesting in the attached file. 

But WKU online is "negative" to my suggestion and just orders me changing Unit 14; 15. 

This is an issue between an instructor and WKU online. 

Can you please give us a practical resolution? 

If that so, I will cooperate by all means.

Preparing for Fall 2020

Dear colleagues,

The rapid transition to remote instruction due to the COVID-19 pandemic has been a challenge to all of us. We quickly acted to ensure that our students successfully complete their Spring 2020 coursework and can continue on their academic paths to degree completion. I truly appreciate those who demonstrated commitment to our students, which was evident as you swiftly pivoted from face-to-face instruction to virtual modalities. You helped our students navigate extraordinary challenges while you and your families faced similar ones. You should be congratulated; the University and I personally thank you for stepping up and making this transition possible.

While I wish the road ahead was an easier one, it may not be. We could not expect what happened this spring, and we cannot predict what fall may have in store for us. COVID-19 not only imposed severe hardships but may also impose a level of transformation on the nation, and especially on higher education, that we could not have imagined a few months ago.

Yet, we must now prepare for the possibility of an equally challenging summer and fall. As you know, we are already preparing for online course delivery for both summer sessions. Now is also the time to prepare for online course delivery for Fall 2020. No one can predict the public health situation in September 2020, so it is both necessary and prudent to prepare for the worst-case scenario and hope for the best. Whether instruction for Fall 2020 will be delivered online, face-to-face, or back and forth between the two as a hybrid of both modalities, preparing each course for online instruction would be inevitable. Further, such preparation will improve and enhance delivery of quality education by ensuring consistency and robust assessment of student learning outcomes.

To ensure the best possible instruction and learning outcomes for our students, all summer and fall courses must be prepared using Blackboard following the process developed by the School of Online Education. That is, structuring every course in units and every unit clearly delineating its learning outcomes and associated assessment leading to the overall assessment of the course. 

The School of Online Education will continue to provide faculty with examples, technical support and training to achieve certification. Only those so certified will be assigned teaching responsibility for Fall 2020 courses. We must be prepared to offer courses on a single platform – Blackboard – using a uniform pedagogy for course delivery.

The course content you deliver will be driven by the curriculum course outlines. Your course must conform with the approved course outline and learning outcomes. Your can improve each course further with your creative capabilities, your experience and your knowledge of the subject matter. By so doing do, you will produce learning outcomes that are both elegant and innovative. I am sure with your commitment to the mission of the University and the success of our students, you will find novel ways to further enhance your course and the learning experience for our students. I am confident that your enthusiasm for the material and the personal touch that you add will expand upon what you do in the brick-and-mortar classroom and will continue to inspire our students even more.

For some programs that have been offered by the School of Online Education and for some courses that were prepared for Wenzhou-Kean University this spring semester, this work has been mostly done, but for many of the courses we plan to offer in Fall 2020, this work must begin now. Your deans and the School of Online Education will provide you with resources and guidance to get started. Many of you have completed or are completing the School of Online Education training in preparation for summer offerings.

Please note that all faculty scheduled to teach courses in Fall 2020, at all Kean campuses in the U.S. as well as WKU, must successfully complete training for online education on the Blackboard platform by June 30. This required training can be completed in approximately 10 hours.

We will supplement this training and will provide additional direction during this year’s Faculty Activity Days and Professional Development Days. They will be held virtually to enhance your capabilities and increase your skills in online course delivery. We are ready to help, so please reach out to your dean, the School of Online Education or my office if you need any assistance. We are all in this together, and together we will meet our obligations to our University and our students.

Finally, in an effort to reduce the financial burden our students bear to continue their coursework, I strongly encourage you to use Open Educational Resource (OER) material. You know most of our students take on more than one part-time job to pay their tuition. You can pay it forward by using OER in lieu of traditional textbook materials and other instructional materials. The Learning Commons staff stands ready to help. Your deans will have details to share regarding the process.

Thank you. Be well, stay safe.

Kean University starts using a new Course Evaluation system (campuslabs.com) from 2019 Fall. 

And WKU CBPM faculty members need to use the brand new course evaluation system. 

This is a short guide for our faculty members. 


Please Log-in with your Kean ID without @kean.edu. 

https://kean.campuslabs.com/faculty/   

If you input @kean.edu, you will get this error message. Please input your kean ID without @kean.edu. 

 

If you log-in you can see your courses. 

 

Please get the Direct Link(s) and Copy. 

 

Send an encouragement Email to students who enrolled each course! 

 

The school recommends us to exercise this strategy to ensure students' participation. 

  1. Set a date to allow students to take the online course evaluation survey in class

  2. Notify your students of the date in advance and ask them to bring a laptop, tablet or smartphone to class to take the survey electronically

  3. Email them the link to your course evaluation (you can get it from your Course Evaluations site)

 

Then, we can get course evaluations from students.

Reporting methods will be updated. :

International Social Entrepreneurship Research Colloquium (Kean USA - Wenzhou Kean University). 

The purpose of International Social Entrepreneurship Research Colloquium at the College of Business and Public Management, Kean (Union, USA & Wenzhou, China) is to create new knowledge of 'Social Entrepreneurship.' 

Social entrepreneurship is an approach by start-up companies and entrepreneurs, in which they develop, fund and implement solutions to social, cultural, or environmental issues. A social entrepreneur creates and operates a social enterprise that is an organization that applies business strategies to maximize improvements in financial, social and environmental well-being through social impact. Social impact is the net effect of an activity on the social fabric of the community and the well-being of individuals and families. 

The research colloquium addresses these research inquiries:  

  • What does drive social entrepreneurship? 

  • How to develop social entrepreneurs? 

  • What does strategic intervention or policy create a mass-scale social impact?

  • How can we transform 'cultural, social, and human' assets into social values? 

  • What managerial applications boost social innovation? 

  • What are the commonalities and differences between American and Chinese social enterprises and social entrepreneurs? 

The research colloquium disseminates research outcomes at academic journals, academic or professional conferences, classroom teachings, mass-media, and social network services to create social impacts.

How to Transfer Money from Wenzhou-Kean University (China) to (foreign) Home? 

 

From Sept. 01, 2019, Wenzhou-Kean University (WKU) directly deposits salary of (foreign) faculty members on 'Chinese Bank Account'. 

 

Transferring money from China to (foreign) home is becoming faculty members' responsibility. 

 

Monthly, two Chinese banks (ICBC and Bank of China) will come to campus and help WKU's foreign faculty members transferring money. But WKU faculty members need to be prepared to transfer money from a Chinese bank account to a foreign bank account. 

 

Here is a possible 'practice' to manage and to make international money transfer smoothly. 

 

1. Make a primary account that has no 'International Money Transfer' limit. 

 

China strictly controls 'international money transfer' especially from China to a foreign country. You need to open a primary account that has 'no international money transfer' at your Chinese domestic bank. You need to bring a few numbers of documents (such as Passport, Tax Record from the school's finance department, and Chinese domestic phone number) to open the account. 

 

 

You may need to visit the bank physically at least one time to make the 'No Limit' primary account. 

 

Here is the information of ICBC location. 

 

 

Address: No. 99 Xiangyuan Road, Wenzhou

Tel: 0577-8887-7878

 

 

 

2. You can make a secondary account (10,000 RMB limited international money transfer) of living in China. 

 

Separating international money transfer account from living expenses account can help us to manage money better. The living expense secondar card can be used to pay Chinese domestic expenses (e.g. Alipay, Taobao, WeChat pay). When you come to your Chinese Bank, you can make a primary and a secondary account at the same time. And you can manage 'International Money Transfer Account' and 'Domestic transaction Account' separately. 

 

 

3. Transfer your salary to your home account (monthly or whatever you want) when Chinese bank comes to WKU campus. 

Necessary Documents: 

Living in China and transferring money to (foreign) home is not an easy task, but it can be done smoothly if we can work together.

Global Practicum Project, 2019: Impact Investing and Social Enterprise: Co-creating the public value for people, community, and the world. 

In 2019, thirteen Kean University business major students from New Jersey, USA and Wenzhou, China were hired as business consultants by the OneHRT (http://www.oht168.com) – a workforce management company at Wenzhou, China. 

The mission of the business consulting project was to identify new business opportunity; to suggest strategic options of Wenzhou Institute of Charity and Public Welfare – a branch of OneHRT enterprise. 

 

June 06, 2019: Site Visit

A Global Practicum consulting team made a site visiting at OneHRT, Wenzhou, China. We were kindly welcomed by the OneHRT company. We visited two sites, and we could get basic understandings about the company throughout observation, Q&A, and intensive communication.

 

June 07 ~ 20, 2018: Consulting Process & Bloomberg Terminal @WKU
The consulting team learned about the consulting processes and basic tools. Four teams were formulated to investigate the impact investing and social enterprise leaders. 

 

 

Business consulting teams completed:

  • Identified managerial issues of the company

  • Defined a managerial problem

  • Conducted external analysis of impact investing and social enterprise  industry

  • Conducted internal analysis of the company

  • Formulated and suggested strategic options 

  • Provided action plans to implement strategy


Particularly consulting teams completed Benchmarking analysis of 24 Global and Domestic impact investing corporation and social enterprise foundations in the perspectives of: 

  • Leadership profiles

  • Mission/ Vision / Value

  • Brief Growth History

  • Services / Brand

  • Size & Operation

  • Brief financial outcomes

  • Profitability analysis

  • Key success factor

  • Recent growth strategy

  • SWOT analysis

 

 

Adding to the Benchmarking analysis, the Consulting team applied Semantic Approach and multiple Statistical Analysis techniques to address the research question of "What factors and How much they make influences on social entrepreneurial intention of business college graduates?".  

 

 

Based on these rigorous research and investigation, she proposed five strategies and 15 practical suggestions for the client. Three suggestions were immediately implemented at OneHRT (e.g. Bubble Drink Day for Social Good; Job training for Bottom-of-Pyramid people; and Plogging initiative). 

 

Final Presentation (June 27, 2019)

13 consultants successfully delivered the consulting outcome and clients were impressed on the high quality of the consulting results. The client would take actions to implement the proposed strategies.

Executive Summary:

The College of Busines & Public Management (CBPM) Social Media Lab at Kean University (Wenzhou) will be archiving, disseminating, and resonating the Business College's research, teaching, and school activities via Social Media. The studio plays a central role in creating "contents."

CBPM Social Media Lab is equipped with Three main video cameras; one HD digital camcorder; two digital cameras; five directional microphone; Chroma Key screens (Blue, White, Green); A/V converter; Two large LCD screens; Multiple LCD Lights; Two computers for editing.

Business students and faculty members will create key contents such as Micro-courses, MooC, Career coaching/mentoring/advising, Online off-class video, Business Talk Podcast, Business Plans, Global experiences, and campus life in English.

WKU CBPM Social Media Lab will disseminate contents through social network services such as Youtube channel; Bilibili; Facebook; Instagram; WeChat.

 


 

BACKGROUND & PROBLEM

College of Business and Public Management wants to archive and disseminate the school’s activities and knowledge to resonate with stakeholders and communities. 

A social media strategy is necessary to share the new knowledge; to show-up the CBPM college in the general public; to marketize creative business ideas. Many prominent business schools actively use social media to archive, disseminate their new knowledge. Also, they connect and expand social networks via social media. Exercising the One-Source-Multi-Use (OSMU) strategy via social media can help WKU CBPM achieving the school’s mission of providing the best education; scholarship, and outreach services for students and community.  


SUGGESTION

Affiliated with WKU’s Media Center, establishing the CBPM social media lab can successfully apply the OSMU strategy. CBPM Social Media Lab operates as a self-organizing entity under the CBPM and Media Center’s guide.

BACKGROUND & PROBLEM

“Doing the right thing!” is getting more crucial to maintaining an organization’s survival and success through keeping reputation; attracting, retaining, and engaging key personnel; and cultivating loyalty among key stakeholders. A social enterprise is an organization that applies business strategies to maximize improvements in financial, social and environmental well-being through social impact. The impact investment emerges as a commitment to generate a measurable beneficial financial, social, or environmental impact. Currently, more than 114 billion USD from 208 impact investors is operating as impact investing (GIIN, 2017). Impact investment in Asia is in the burgeoning stage. Many Asian impact investment funds suffer from finding investment opportunities and exercising exit strategy. Chinese investors give special attention to Impact investment recently. However, there are a few challenges to build impact investment ecosystem in China. 

THE NEED OF CENTER FOR SOCIAL ENTERPRISE AND CHARITY

An integrative collaboration among University-Industry-Government (Triple Helix) is necessary to meet the needs of education, synergy, and opportunity for impact investment. A hub is necessary to orchestrate and synergize academic, industrial, and governmental endeavors for social innovation through impact investment. 
WKU is proposing the “Center for Social Enterprise and Charity (CSEC)”

WHY CSEC IN CBPM?

Aligning with the College’s mission of ’Providing high quality education, research, and outreach services’, WKU CBPM actively engages in community business and talent development for public value creation. 

CSEC in WKU CBPM would restructure college activities including research, education, and community engagement to vitalize social enterprise actions. 
CSEC in WKU CBPM will be organized with the best experts of the social enterprise field of study, and it will synergize the university resources to serve public value creation. 
CSEC will provide the best quality of consulting, education, global network services for impact investors (particularly in Wenzhou area) CSEC will be serving new knowledge for the Government to help to establish the best public policy for social enterprise. Also, CSEC will provide the strategic consulting service in operating the Wenzhou Charity Federation (温州市慈善总会). 

SUMMARY

Establishing the CSEC (Center for Social Enterprise and Charity) in WKU CBPM will integrate and synergize Governmental, Academic, and Industrial actions of impact investment that aim to creating public value for people, community, and the world.  

For more detail information, please see the following Proposal.

April, 2019

 

 


Dr. Yan (at HKST) published an article of "The Rise of Socially Responsible Investment Funds" at the ASQ journal (Administrative Science Quarterly 2019, Vol. 64(2)466–501, 10.1177/0001839218773324, Impact Factor: 5.4) 

He demonstrated the inverted U-shape relationship between Socially Responsible Fund (data from Bloomberg FSRC, SRI category) and Prevalence of Financial Logic (Proportion of the workforce employed in the financial sector). The inverted U-shape relationship is moderated by a few variables like Union, Religion, Green policy. 

The article may give us a direction - Impact Investment (Socially Responsibly Fund) is rising in the management field of study. 

In the article of "Morality" by Curry, a question rises. 

Does the recent rise of socially responsible fund or social enterprise come from the increasing the awareness of people's morality?   

Simply, does the more moral people invest in the socially responsible actions (fund or enterprise)? 

Because the Morality-As-Cooperation concept is emerged quite recently (Harvard, Chicago, Oxford University collaborate the study), there is no attempt to investigating the relationship between Morality & Social Entrepreneurship. Probably, we can fill this gap. 

The final Besharov's book review of "Innovation and Scaling for Impact" may give us a casual understanding about Social enterprise and Impact Investing. 

All things integrating, CSEC can explore a new venue in Social entrepreneurship studies in the perspective of Financial, International management, Human Resources, and Managerial practices, and Sustainability.

WKU CBPM Project Based Learning (PBL) Initiative



The purpose of WKU CBPM Project Based Learning (PBL) Initiative is to provide the experiential learning opportunities for WKU CBPM students through addressing the real business problems and cases from Wenzhou businesses. 

Detail processes of exercising the WKU CBPM PBL are: 

1. OHT coordinator recruits and summarizes potential clients who would like to solve their real business problems. 

2. CBPM PBL coordinator recruits and summarizes potential classes that can address the real business problems from clients. 

3. CBPM classes make visits to client(s) to make an initial contract for consulting project. 

4. CBPM classes and clients conduct consulting projects together



Potential Clients & Projects


Company Name: 

Wenzhou Yixiang Culture Media Co., Ltd.

Company Profile: 

The business scope: celebration class, company features event exhibition, balloon craft, balloon entrepreneurship training, etc.

Problem that needs to be addressed: 

A series of problems with the expansion of the team, the promotion of employees, the setting of salary, and the expansion of business.


Company Name: 

Wenzhou Aunt Tribe Family Service Co., Ltd.

Company Profile: 

Based on school training and family service company, combined with family service company. Business philosophy: integrity-based. We are dedicated to the Chinese family to deliver professional, high-quality good aunt.

Problem that needs to be addressed: 

1. Enrollment is difficult

3. How can we better retain students after training?


Company Name: 

Wenzhou Human Resources Network

Company Profile: 

Wenzhou Human Resources Network was established in 2003 and is the earliest established online recruitment platform in Wenzhou.

In the 15 years, there have been a large number of user groups and good customer reputation.

The overall human resources market has changed dramatically in 2018. First of all, the large-scale outflow of labor-intensive small and micro enterprises in Wenzhou is accompanied by the loss of workers. Second, the rapid development of Hangzhou, Ningbo and other places, the charm of the city attracts young people to work and start businesses. In contrast, Wenzhou's quality talents can't stay, and they can't get in. Third, due to the aging of the Wenzhou Human Resources Network brand, the market investment has decreased, and the overall brand influence is not as good as the recent national websites, such as 58 City, Zhilian Recruitment, and Boss.

Problem that needs to be addressed:
