Tata Group’s foray into Social Entrepreneurship?

Business Standard reports that the Tata Group has launched a International Social Entrepreneurship Scheme in partnership with UC Berkley and University of Cambridge:

As part of the Tata International Social Entrepreneurship Scheme (TISES), the University of California, Berkeley and University of Cambridge will identify up to five students each from the undergraduate or higher study level, for an 8-week summer internship at Tata Group’s community initiative programmes. The MOUs signed between the Tata Group and the University of California, Berkeley and University of Cambridge stand for a period of three years.

Would a 8-week internship in the CSR wing to the Tata group classify as social entrepreneurship? Drop in a comment and let us know your views.
