oikos Curriculum Academy is a 3-day workshop for students, early career researchers, faculty representatives and other stakeholders, developed and facilitated by oikos student members. Its main purpose is to reflect and learn about innovative economics and management programs and teaching approaches that are designed to address current global environmental and social challenges.
We are pleased to invite you to an online debate with faculty, young scholars and students who have been intensively working on reforming economics and management education.
