Sustainability Management

Sustainability Management (MBA)

Sustainable development is considered one of the key societal challenges of the 21st century. We face complex challenges in this regard: Energy costs are rising with potential supply insecurities, critical infrastructures are increasingly stressed and overloaded, i.e., by climate-related extreme weather events. People are increasingly concerned about these developments and are looking for sustainable solutions. Hence, sustainability aspects play a decisive role in buying decisions in B2B and B2C markets.

At the same time, regulatory pressure is rising. The transformation to a post-fossil economy must be mastered, production processes and logistics must be changed, all stakeholders must be actively involved, and progress must be transparently measured and reported.

Can all these challenges be mastered at all? The answer is clearly yes – because our online part-time executive degree program “Sustainability Management” leading to the degree “Master of Business Administration” (MBA) specifically prepares you to meet today´s challenges and to optimally use the resulting opportunities in the future.
