The Indiana University Kelley School of Business has established a 10-week Foundations of Social Commerce program to deliver basic business knowledge to the people of Kenya through its partnership with Moi University in Eldoret. The inaugural program is the first of what university officials hope will blossom into a broader “Business of Peace Through Prosperity” education program. Foundations of Social Commerce is intended to help Kenyan entrepreneurs get beyond product or service development and learn fundamentals, such as finance, communications and marketing, and growth models. The strategic partnership with the Kenyan university started in 2006 through the Indiana University Medical School in Indianapolis. The partnership is considered one of the university’s most significant international alliances. The pilot business program, limited to 50 people and broken into five two-week modules, started in September and is led by Todd Roberson, senior lecturer of finance at the Kelley School.
