The Social Economy (called “solidarity economy” or “third sector) grew out of the need to find new and innovative solutions to social, economic and environmental problems in order to deal with the needs of communities and community members who are ignored or insufficiently covered by the public or private sectors’ programs. In recent decades, the social economy has not only claimed the ability to contribute effectively to deal with new social problems, but also has strengthened its position as an indispensable institution for the sustainable and stable economic development. As such, the social economy aims to adapt the existing services to the needs, to increase the value of economic activities that meet social needs and to ensure a more equitable distribution of income and wealth, correcting imbalances within the labour market, thus managing to deepen and strengthen the economic democracy. Given this context, the main mission of the European Model. European Social Economy Master Program is to train specialists in order to meet the demand for qualified people for this market segment that is under process of expansion and diversification. Specifically, graduates may choose to form new business entities in this area such as cooperatives, mutual societies, associations, foundations, etc., or work to existing ones where labour market offers this opportunity.
