About the course

The aim of the course “Social Entrepreneurship, Social Innovation and Sustainability” is to provide students with a new orientation and way of thinking to organise and lead sustainable development namely through social entrepreneurship and social innovation. The course provides students with an understanding of the fields of social entrepreneurship and social innovation, which are rapidly gaining attention around the world from policy makers, organisations and others. As the traditional lines blur between non-profit enterprises, public services and business, it is critical that students understand the opportunities and challenges in this new landscape, which can be seen as highly relevant in the context of sustainability. The course aims at developing entrepreneurial skills and thinking frames for students who will lead sustainable economic, social and environmental projects in their future professions.
