Creating Social Entrepreneurs and Innovators



The AURORA Alliance equips European Universities to provide a diverse student population with the skills and mindset needed to contribute to addressing societal challenges as social entrepreneurs and innovators.

AURORA supports the Nordic Nine strategy at CBS by recognizing humanity’s challenges and having the entrepreneurial knowledge to help resolve them.

You can find more about Aurora and the key priority themes on the AURORA website.

AURORA relies on intensive cooperation with our 10 selected European partners from Reykjavik to Naples. You can see  the list of our partners at the end of this page.

Via collaboration of educators and exchange among students, social entrepreneurship education will be enhanced with innovative teaching formats such as blended format electives, summer university courses, and hackathons at CBS or at our AURORA partners.  

We invite you to  read more about the AURORA opportunities for social entrepreneurship education below.

Aurora COIL Fair on LGBTQ+ issues across the disciplines


Aurora seeks to promote Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) projects on LGBTQ+ issues across the disciplines and with a particular focus on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (e.g. SDG 5 “Gender Equality”; SDG 10 “Reduced Inequalities”; or SDG 16 “Peace, Justice, and Strong Institutions”).

We therefore invite instructors from all Aurora and associated universities as well as local stakeholders to a COIL Fair, to be held on May 24, 2022, from 16.00 – 17.00 CEST

Instructors interested in LGBTQ+ issues and the UN SDGS who are looking for new COIL teaching partners, please follow the link so your information can be featured in the upcoming AURORA COIL Partnering Bulletin.
