The aim is to enhance the participants' knowledge of sustainable development from a business perspective; among other, including ethics, environmental issues and social responsibility.
During the course we discuss ways in which a company can accommodate the demands for sustainability set by customers, authorities and other interest groups.
Simultaneously we take a pro-active stance, studying how new markets and competitive advantages can be gained through sustainability.

Avgifter

Vasa sommarunis kursavgift 140 € + Öppna universitetets studieavgift 50 €
Varför finns det två avgifter?
- Kursavgiften betalas av alla och används för att kunna betala lärarens lön, hyror och andra administrativa avgifter. Kursavgiften betalas av alla deltagare.
- Åbo Akademis öppna universitet fakturerar en terminsavgift som ger den studerande studierätt och innefattar bl.a. registrerande av studiepoäng och möjlighet till att få ett officiellt intyg från universitetet. Terminsavgiften faktureras maximalt två ggr per år. Om du exempelvis går två kurser under vårterminen (1.1. – 31.7.) får du en faktura, om du går en kurs under vårterminen och en under hösten (1.8. – 31.12) betalar du två terminsavgifter.
Observera att studerande inskrivna vid Åbo Akademi betalar sommaruniversitetets kursavgift, men slipper terminsavgiften till det öppna universitetet.
