Social Entrepreneurship

Social Entrepreneurship


The Simonyi Summer Social Entrepreneurship Program focuses on value creation in the regional socio-economic environment of the University of Pecs.

You will have the opportunity to provide professional support to social entrepreneurship initiatives that can have real social impact in the region.

You will cooperate with culturally and professionally diverse student groups in a practice oriented, experiential learning context that focuses on real-life projects and project owners in the region. Professional mentors will assist your teams in imbedding the projects. You can have the experience of achieving tangible results by means of value generating solutions within a well-defined local socio-economic environment.

Student teams will work within the framework of “Student Consulting Companies (SCCs)” with own company profile and visuals, roles and functions within the SCC that will work on multiple projects during the program. As the challenges that the student teams encounter are real, the maximum proficiency will be expected in terms of communication, interaction, and quality of deliverables.

One of the main objectives throughout the program is to build an active, vibrant Entrepreneurial Ecosystem that allows participating individuals to continue co- and value creation once the program is over.
