The summer school programme in Mexico Social Entrepreneurship is a 3 week programme. The student will learn how to empower people and help them to achieving better life.

The programme is multidisciplinary and the student will work with other students from different areas. The Mexican students will be from international relations, business management and psychology, while the Danish students will be from nursing education programmes, social education and social work. This gives the student the opportunity to participate in a multidisciplinary approach which is needed in Social Entrepreneurship.
During the course, there will be a co-operation with different associations in order to implement and develop educational theories and practices. With this material, the student will acquire the high level skills needed to work with little or no means while on equal terms with people locally and globally.

With lectures such as How to work with families at risk, Social Entrepreneurship, Models of Dialogues etc and various topics in Mexican society, the
summer school will culminate in all participants making presentations and receiving graded certificates proving their attendance. Students can ask their local universities for the equivalence of the course.
