Intensive Courses

Our new and fourth intensive course, Smart City - Building a Sustainable Future, will take place for the first time in April 2018 in Lahti. The theme of this year's course is Sharing Economy. Students work on a report about the topic at their home universities (countries) and meet during 10 intensive days to do group work, a live project with Henna Smart City, presentations, lectures and social activities. To the right you can find the course information for the course.

For more information see brochure example, program and student tasks from 2010 to the right.

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).

The third intensive course, Business Ethics and Entrepreneurship, was given between 2014-2016. The course was developed from the previous course idea but with a deeper focus on ethics and social entrepreneurship. Every year the hosting institution was responsible for finding live project for the students (see course descriptions fro 2014-2016 to the right).
