International Business Ethics - June 20th - June 25th offered at Rosenheim Technical University, Rosenheim, Germany
Learn more about the ethics of responsible business decisions in a competitive global world. You will use major ethical theories to explore specific corporate cases and topics such as rights to privacy, insider trading, whistleblowing, sustainability and more.

Towards a Circular Economy - June 27th - July 2nd offered at Windesheim University of Applied Sciences, Zwolle, the Netherlands
Study transition towards circular supply chains and current trends, such as shared economy, blockchain, understanding financial and supply chain implications.

To understand as well as experience the opportunities and obstacles of adopting circular strategies, you will play an online simulation game, the Blue Connection. You and your teammates will be responsible for the transition of a manufacturing company from a linear to a circular business model. You decide on suppliers to source from, the quality and sustainability of materials to buy, the cost and process of reusing, recycling and repairing – basically the sort of challenges that any real business currently has to deal with. This simulation requires a smart implementation of circular concepts, so it is a powerful way to create engagement and to learn circularity by doing it!
