Towards global solutions
This CAS follows the idea of project-based learning. The participants get the opportunity to test and execute the contents of the course directly on real-time projects in social enterprises around the world. The CAS is designed for leaders of social initiatives, nonprofit organizations (NPOs), and enterprises that target global challenges of our society (e.g. child health, education, migration, etc.). The need for intercultural co-operation, innovative projects, and new thinking demands for leaders who adapt quickly to new circumstances and are able to overcome cultural differences.
