ENGAGE.EU Work Integrated Learning

Program overview

Are you interested in lifelong learning, want to act socially engaged, and bring about change in your organization? Try our Work Integrated Learning Program. An open and inclusive educational offering targeting practitioners and entrepreneurs working in contexts sensitive to challenges related to innovation and/or sustainable development. It is possible to earn portable certificates and ECTS points, learn and apply design thinking, participate in Labs and Spaces, go on bootcamps, and in some pilots participants earn credits that they can transfer and use in other MBA or EMBA.

The program consists of intensive courses designed around one topic. They’re developed and delivered by one or more ENGAGE.EU partner universities. These modules are pilots to implement and test the program. Each pilot has a specific format and includes a variety of activities that are organized around two main types of phases:

  1. Input phase: online courses (combining synchronous and asynchronous components) that provide participants with relevant knowledge, tools, and methods to tackle societal challenges.

  2. Implementation phase: in-person bootcamps taking place as workshops at the campuses of our partner institutions, where participants apply the knowledge, tools, and methods delivered in the input phase to collaboratively address real-life societal challenges sponsored by ENGAGE.EU stakeholders (e.g., not-for-profit or non-governmental organization, municipalities or cities, industry clusters).
