In a perpetually changing world, companies need people who master not only the concepts and tools of business as usual, but also understand the complexity of social, environmental and economic ecosystems, emerging trends, and anticipate, or initiate, changes in society. These individuals must be adaptable, resilient and create value for their company and society.
This MSc enables individuals to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to make informed decisions to build a sustainable future - creating positive sustainable change for individuals, organisations, and the world.
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.
The programme is accredited by CGE (Conférence des Grandes Écoles).
Why choose this programme?
- Experiential learning by using real life projects and experiencing sustainability both inside and outside of the classroom
- Applied knowledge: skills developed are those inspired by the needs and standards of the international (business) community
The programme can be individualised with elective courses to enable each student realise their vision of sustainable change: be it in a company, by starting or working in a social enterprise or through academic research.
