The obvious can no longer be ignored — climate change is having distinct impacts on every dimension of life around the world. The time to deliver new ways of thinking and operating to preserve our planet is now, and companies are certainly feeling the heat. Businesses, which have an out-sized impact on our society and culture, are more and more assuming responsibility for a sustainable management of the economy and our livelihoods.
That’s where you come into play. All types of organisations are following that call. Governments are adapting infrastructure to reduce weather shocks on its citizens. Renewable energy technologies need to be adapted to more sectors and resource-efficient solutions from a circular or sharing economy are spreading. Companies need to develop responsible supply chains in their global operations, and start-ups are developing innovative solutions for urban farming. Nearly all are being asked to report on and communicate their environmental and social impacts.
The opportunities are vast. Business is changing, and they’re looking for passionate and knowledgeable experts to help meet their obligations to society and the environment while also driving impact and growth.
The Master in International Sustainability Management equips you with the knowledge and skills to address these opportunities with an interdisciplinary approach. As a Master of Science, the programme is grounded in science and research, but also takes on a business perspective. It offers a broad portfolio of classes on the different problems and their context, solutions to consider, and management tools to deal with the transition.
