Honoursmodule: Social Entrepreneurship

Is it possible to apply academic skills to concrete societal or environmental problems as a student?

During this course, you will acquire entrepreneurial skills and engage in at least 80 hours of community service where you will gain experience in applying these entrepreneurial skills to a societal or environmental issue. The course thus contributes to the mission of the University of Amsterdam (UvA) to engage 'with social issues, in keeping with the spirit of the city with which it is inextricably linked' (UvA profile and mission).

This honours module is organised by the College of Economics and Business. More information about the course can be found here.


The schedule will be available on Datanose.


Registration is open to second-year or third-year Bachelor's students participating in an Honours programme. Between 8 June 10 am and 12 June 11 pm, you can register by completing the online registration form that will appear on our website Honoursmodules IIS.  

Please note: Registration is not through SIS. Placement is at random. There is no guarantee for placement if you register after June 12, so make sure you register on time. You will hear which course(s) you are registered for in the week of 20 June.
