*All Gabelli School sophomores have the chance to express interest in a version of the sophomore business core that is focused on social innovation: using business approaches to find solutions for problems that face society. These “social innovation cohorts” have special relevance to the mission of the Ignite Scholars Program, so scholars complete the sophomore-year business core as a member of one of these cohorts.
