Across the globe, sustainability has become increasingly important. As a result of this, industries and organizations around the world are now expected to realize and manage the impact they have not just on the economy and society, but also on the environment.
Our Sustainable Management specialization concentrates on the intersection of business and sustainability and provides you with vital information that helps to ensure the long-term viability of your business.
Through a combination of the strong basic knowledge learned from the mandatory foundation modules and the in-depth understanding of various sustainability issues – including legal regulations in the field of sustainability – gained from your specialization, this course will help you develop strategic and operational concepts to promote sustainability in your business or will encourage you to maybe even start your own sustainable company.
Expand your knowledge in the sustainability field across organizations, industries, and practices, enhance your capabilities in business, consulting, and ESG (environmental, social, and governance) and establish your transition to sustainable business.
