EDUCating for Positive Management
The „EDUCating for Positive Management” project was designed by the six members of the EDUC European University selected by Erasmus+ in 2019. They all share an interest in developing new learning materials to promote more responsible management approaches, including enterpreneurship. Each partner has key expertise related to the project topic: the University of Paris Nanterre with responsible strategies and business models, the University of Potsdam with entreprneurship, information system and public information, the Masaryk University and the University of Cagliari with stakeholder management and governance, the University of Pécs with marketing approaches and the University of Rennes 1 with ethical human management.
In the context of international engagements on social, environmental and economic issues (UN Sustainable Development Goals, EU Agenda 2030, European Green Deal, “Accord de Paris”, …) and of the digital revolution, universities in management have a great role to play in the environmental and social transition by providing and teaching new management tools that could help to face 21st century challenges. It could also be consistent with new solutions to face the post-COVID 19 crisis.
The general objective of our project is to tackle the gap of existing management fundamentals and teaching by proposing alternative contents, new tools and pedagogical models. We aim to produce and experiment with innovative pedagogical methods, tested in interdisciplinary and intercultural enviroments with digital, blended and face-to-face approaches. A programme of four courses for the master’s degree programme will be produced: an online course about „Management for the Digital Age”, a Positive Business game, a blended learning course about „Innovation in Positive Management” and a Positive Manager study programme.
