Balancing growth and sustainability

Environmental Studies now stand front and centre in our analysis of future competitiveness. Man-made climate change is a critical modern challenge, and the way companies deal with it defines their public image. Our master programme in Environmental Management and Sustainability (in founding phase, master programmes will start in 2018) tackles core issues: carbon footprint, climate modelling, environmental ethics, biodegradable materials, the challenges of mobility and of megacities.

Be a Change Maker

For the sake of future generations, we must develop innovative environmental solutions in both technology and policy. The biggest issue facing sustainability management is to balance conservation interests with demand for economic growth. Our master programme gives a broad grounding in natural sciences, social sciences and environmental ethics - for understanding climate change, its decision-making processes and its solutions.

Executives and young professionals tackle the challenges for transitioning their companies to true sustainability. Graduates are prepared for managing sustainable product development in the producing industries and in CSR, visioning and redesigning structures for business, government and the non-profit sector.

Director of Studies

We all sense that our environment is changing. We are not merely talking about the possibility of global warming. Therefore, we are obliged to develop practical solutions to help us deal with the consequences of climate change and guarantee a secure future for humanity.
