Corporate sustainability is rapidly becoming a mainstream management function. Organisations want to hire individuals who can see opportunities, and work to create positive social, environmental and economic impacts. The rise of sustainability has profound implications for the job market, creating an increased demand for employees with CSR/corporate sustainability competencies and skills as well as dedicated jobs within companies, as well as in non-governmental organisations and the public sector.

A word from the Programme Director
The Master in Sustainable Change is designed to help students develop the mind-set, skills, and knowledge to navigate through complex and changing times. We combine the ideas of sustainable change and business logic, and support students as they focus on their passion and values – enabling them to develop a career combining sustainability with what they love.
This Master of Science was co-designed by specialised faculty, the CSR department and members of our CSR network including businesses and associations, to offer a programme that reflects genuine business and societal needs. Through experiential learning, courses on our Marseille, Toulon, Bordeaux and Paris campuses, and regular interaction with network members, participants will develop in ways necessary to facilitate sustainable change throughout their career – both personally and for business. Being a change agent is an exciting challenge, and our programme aims to prepare you for that!
