It highlights the program's role in equipping students with the knowledge, skills, and real-world experiences required to meet the evolving demands of socially responsible business leadership in an increasingly complex world.Leveraging qualitative research, encompassing 39 personal semi-structured interviews, 3 co-creation workshops, and 3 board of trustees meetings, this paper delineates an innovation model tailored for navigating change within Higher Education (HE). Additionally, it encourages HE institutions to strike a harmonious balance between efficient daily management and the systematic cultivation of new opportunities through ideation.
