Student Clubs as Practical Element of Responsible Management Education

Student Organisations and Responsible Managment Education

This workshop session aims to foster a discussion around the chances of applying management skills in the frame of student organizations.

Student-run organizations offer diverse opportunities for extracurricular engagements. Projects and clubs managed by students with a sustainable agenda provide co-curricular learning opportunities, where responsible management education would find its practical integration. The application of taught management skills in particular student projects and service learning clubs leads to the great opportunity of a comprehensive and rewarding learning experience that would open up new perspectives. However, there is a faculty need to support and integrate extra curricular student efforts in order to create awareness and lower the barriers for student participation.

This workshop will have brief presentations of several student initiatives and is designed to facilitate dynamic interaction with participants.
