Six universities, hundreds of disciplines and thousands of students – all coming together under the banner of SSES. Through us, you can make friends at other universities, engage with our world-leading faculty, get to know alumni founders, and meet our global network of partners who can enrich and assist you on your personal journey.
All students and alumni at our member universities can participate in the SSES activities. These activities come in three different forms: courses, workshops, and bootcamps. Below you can find out more about what each activity entails.
Elevate your education by exploring our cutting-edge interdisciplinary courses. The best part: these courses are recognised as internal at our member universities and count towards your degree. You apply the same way you would for other courses at your university – just select and enroll in each course you want to join and design your own diverse learning experience.
Courses are split into three different categories: core, context, and skills. Our core courses follow the four stages of venture creation, from idea to managing a growing business. These are the pillars on which your entrepreneurial knowledge is built. Through our context courses you get to immerse yourself in specific industries and areas, gaining insights and discovering opportunities. Finally, our skills courses provide you with practical techniques like design thinking, negotiation, trendspotting and much more. These are the marathon shoes that have you hitting the ground running the minute you leave the classroom.
Our courses are free and all full-time programme students at our member universities with at least 120 ECTS credits are welcome to apply. For more information about eligibility, click below.
Join us for an explorative weekend deep-dive into a specific skill set. In our highly intensive and interactive workshops you will do much more than just taking in information. You will explore, expand and deepen your knowledge into the subject through our antidisciplinary methodology.
In order to ensure an optimal experience, we carefully select a maximum of 14 diverse, bright and engaged participants to join.
Our workshops are free and students and alumni of SSES and our six member universities are all welcome to apply.
Our crown-jewel and most popular activity is the international Bootcamp. A week-long social immersion taking place somewhere around the globe in collaboration with our world-class academic and corporate partners. These bootcamps are designed and developed for our most engaged and ambitious students, giving them the tools and opportunity to address wicked problems and complex social challenges through antidisciplinary methods and collaborations.
Through a meticulous selection process, we handpick one student from each of the six member universities in order to maximize diversity of disciplines, perspectives, cultures, and genders.
Our international bootcamps are free and students and alumni of SSES and our six member universities are all welcome to apply.
