Intensive Courses

Our third intensive course, Business Ethics and Entrepreneurship, took place for the third time in April 2016 - Riga, Latvia. The theme of this year's course was Experience Economy (2014 Social Entrepreneurship, 2015 Ecopreneurship). Students worked on a report at their home universities and met during 10 intensive days to do group work, company visits, presentations, lectures and social activities. To the right you can find the course information for the course from the academic years 2013/2104, 2014/2015 and 2015/2016. We have also added examples of a country report and multi cultural report from the spring of 2016.

Students were very satisfied with the course and the live projects they worked with during the week.

The second intensive course, Business Strategies for Sustainable Development (BSSD), ran between 2011-2013. This course originated from a few teachers that had a big interest in this field and the focus of the course was towards CSR. Every year the hosting institution was responsible for finding live project for the students (see course descriptions fro 2011-2013 to the right).
