Honoursmodule: Social Entrepreneurship

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

Is it possible to apply academic skills to concrete societal or environmental problems as a student? During this course students will acquire entrepreneurial skills and will engage in at least 80 hours of community service where they 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).

The course Social Entrepreneurship is coordinated by the Amsterdam Business School (UvA) in collaboration with the Institute for Interdisciplinary Studies (UvA) and the Amsterdam Business Research Institute (VU). The course consists of three interrelated and integrated components and will be assessed based on the successful completion of at least 80 hours of community service and three different assignments.

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


You can find the timetable on UvA Timetable.
