In our society, social needs are met in a variety of ways. Many through public organizations but also within private spheres (associations or companies) and in informal organizations or perhaps not at all. A social innovation involves identifying new social problems and finding solutions for action, individually or collectively.

The course will address important areas such as norms, ethics and well-being, corporate social responsibility and non-profit business models.

The teaching includes a mixture of lectures, debates, discussions and workshops as well as guest lecturers. A project work in social entrepreneurship will be developed during the course through group work.
