The Educational Programme that we have developed offers an integrated approach to social entrepreneurship. It provides in a simple and understandable way the most up-to-date knowledge, aiming at developing the necessary skills for even more efficient management of social enterprises. By completing the program, the participants will have acquired knowledge to help them create their own social enterprise or work in social economy enterprises maximizing the social impact of their actions based on the modern challenges of the business environment, while reducing the risk of a potential failure."
