Our approach to teaching

The Competence Center for Social Innovation (CSI-HSG) is dedicated to fostering a future where innovation and entrepreneurship catalyze societal and environmental improvement. Our goal is to educate a generation of students who are passionate about addressing global challenges and possess the skills to make tangible impacts. Through our educational framework, we provide students with the opportunity to combine theoretical insights with practical experiences, enabling the development of innovative solutions to today's most pressing issues.

CSI-HSG emphasizes the importance of interdisciplinary collaboration, recognizing that meaningful change requires collective effort. The curriculum is designed to prepare students to work effectively within diverse teams and forge strong networks aimed at fostering sustainable solutions.

The educational approach extends beyond conventional learning paradigms. By integrating immersive workshops, projects, and experiences that prompt critical thinking and creative problem-solving, CSI-HSG aims to inspire students to challenge the status quo, explore new perspectives, and realize their full potential as change agents.

Join us on this transformative journey and become part of a vibrant community dedicated to making a lasting difference. Our programs aim to equip you with the knowledge and skills needed to make a positive impact on the world, promoting sustainability and inclusivity.
