If you are a socially conscious person, why don't you run your business in a way that will help achieve social objectives? - Muhammad Yunus
The Yunus Social Business Centre has been established to contribute to Nobel Peace Laureate Muhammad Yunus’s philosophy of driving systems change through social entrepreneurship and enterprise.
The Centre is part of the Griffith Business School and based out of the Logan Campus. We are active across Griffith’s campuses and work at local, regional, national, and international levels.

I am proposing to create a new kind of business. Business based on the selflessness that is in all of us. I am calling this, social business.
Professor Muhammad Yunus
