CAS Global Social Entrepreneurship

Think globally, act locally

Our world faces problems that transcend country borders and continental shorelines. Finding solutions to complex global issues requires a new way of thinking by leaders of nonprofit organizations, businesses, and social enterprises.

The Certificate Course (CAS) in Global Social Entrepreneurship offers you the unique opportunity to improve your management and leadership skills in the context of an international course, while at the same time engaging in the implementation of a local social business.

Future program

Building on the experience of our successful two previous courses on Global Social Entrepreneurship in Mongolia and Sri Lanka, we are currently revising our training concept. In particular, we are striving for an even closer collaboration with local students and foreign educational organizations so as to assure a constructive knowledge transfer for everybody involved.

The next course will deal with innovative project work in developing countries. Details will be presented at the beginning of 2018, at which point registration for the start in autumn 2018 will be possible. The course will be held in English.
