EU-funding to CEMS collaboration

The NHH project Sustainable Business Models has been allocated funding from the Erasmus+ programme called Strategic partnerships.

The budget for the project is NOK1,6 million. The project is a collaboration between four CEMS partner institutions:

-       NHH (lead partner)
-       Corvinus University of Budapest
-       Copenhagen Business School
-       ESADE (Barcelona)

Educational programme

The aim of the project is to develop a comprehensive educational programme that covers a wide set of themes related to the design and innovation of sustainable business models and business practices.

The project will strengthen the quality and relevance of teaching sustainability in European business schools.

The project uses educational innovations, such as video and online/digital teaching both on the part of faculty and students. This will render possible new forms of teaching and learning, and will also remove the geographical constraints on collaborative teaching in courses and seminars at each institution and in the teaching network of which they are part through CEMS - the Global Alliance in Management Education. Thus, teaching activities will take place both at the separate institutions and in their inter-institutional collaborative teaching in the CEMS network.

Participants from NHH

Lars Jacob Tynes Pedersen, Associate Professor and the project's leader
Sveinung Jørgensen, Adjunct Associate Professor
Sabina du Rietz, Assistant Professor
Knut J. Ims, Professor

The teaching activities of the project will be conducted within the CEMS network's existing teaching structure, wherein so-called block seminars and global leadership seminars are central.
