Education

Studying Social Economy

The design of higher education curricula addressing co-operation and non-profit issues concerns the training of human capital able to manage “different organisations”, both in terms of mission and governance. Furthermore, people who want to operate in the non-profit sector have to be able to account for the performances and the impact generated by their organisations on the stakeholders, on the territories and on society as a whole. This is the assignment of the Campus of Social Economy, that particularly thanks to the collaboration with the School of Management and Statistics of the University of Bologna and AICCON, is recognized as a point of reference for education and training on economics of co-operation and non-profit sector, in Italy and abroad.

People who want to operate in the nonprofit sector have to be able to account for the performances and the impact generated by their organisations on the stakeholders, on the territories and on the society as a whole.

The research center is promoted by the University of Bologna, Unibo Forlì Campus, AICCON and numerous public and private organisations dealing with social economy:

  • School of Management and Statistics of the University of Bologna
  • Forlì Campus, within the academic course on Social Economy
  • AICCON (Italian Association for the Promotion of the Culture of Co-operation and of Non-profit Organisations), formed in 1997 among University of Bologna, School of Economics, Management and Statistics, Forlì Campus. It was recognised as a point of reference for education and training on economics of co-operation and non-profit sector, in Italy and abroad. AICCON is part of a network of people and institutions at national and international level that, starting from its members, form the environment in which it is located and through the years, has increased its relevance as scientific reference at local, national and international level, thanks to the influence of its events, training and research activities realized in collaboration with the academic world and the Thirds Sector.
