Work with real life challenges
The programme includes on-campus instruction and guest lectures as well as study trips around Denmark, where the students explore a variety of social enterprises. These hands-on encounters enable international networking, invite the students to make cross-national comparisons and pave the way for international collaboration in the future.
In a vibrant international student environment and in close collaboration with the local student entrepreneurship centre, you will work with real life challenges and the outcome of the semester will be your own individual business plan for a social enterprise.
