2nd Social Innovation MOOC: EBS launches free online course on social innovation

Starting on 2nd November, the Institute for Transformation in Business and Society at EBS Universität für Wirtschaft und Recht is offering for the second time a free online course open to anyone interested. Social Innovation MOOC (= Massive Open Online Course) is the name of the interactive programme that combines in six chapters lectures with discussions and exercises.

logo_EBS-universität Social innovations are new social processes that aim to contribute to the development of more beneficial, more just and sustainable ways of living, working and doing business together. But what exactly are social innovations? What can they accomplish? And how can they be developed and implemented? The online course Social Innovation MOOC offered by EBS Universität provides answers to these and other questions. Over the course of six weeks participants will gain a theoretical understanding of social innovations, develop their skills in this area and learn how to develop, implement and scale social innovations. At the same time they will be encouraged by teaching staff to develop social innovations themselves.

The course, that is introductory and requires no prior subject knowledge, is free of charge and is offered in English. Participants just need to register for the online course here.


The MOOC was developed as part of the research project "Social Innovation in Germany" funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research and carried out by the World Vision Center for Social Innovation at EBS Universität für Wirtschaft und Recht. Lecturers on the online course are Dr Susan Müller, Nicholas Wenzel and Christine Rimke.
