About the course

Social and environmental entrepreneurship have become frequently used concepts, both in Sweden and internationally. But what do these forms of entrepreneurship really stand for? How does such prevailing practice appear? And what it is the importance of this practice for societal developments? This course will – based upon contemporary societal challenges – explore, problematize and analyze: theoretical, practical and political perspectives, upon these forms of entrepreneurship.

The course is given and examined in English.
