Sustainable Management - Master of Science (MSc)

Legislations make it compulsory for businesses, for example, to reduce their emissions. A more developed consumer awareness is furthermore transforming market structures and putting pressure on organisations to incorporate sustainability into their business processes, both on an ecological and a social level. This shift requires new competences in professionals, e.g. in regards to the implementation of sustainability-oriented management and controlling systems or sustainability reporting. The Master’s programme in Sustainable Management closes this gap by graduating practitioners with exactly these skills and competences.
