Universities have a great and important role that they need to fulfill. They decide which type of education they want to provide to their students both in terms of content and working style. Students’ knowledge and skills can be put into practice in a very valuable way by assisting in and solving ‘real-life’ case studies of Social Enterprises in real need of the abilities and knowledge of a student.
