'Sustainability and Growth' (formerly: Resources, Development and Growth) is one of the specialized tracks of the Master's program in Economics.

Tilburg University is ranked #11 worldwide in Business and Economics (Times Higher Education, 2016).

Combine inclusive economic growth with a non-deteriorating environment:

Recently the OECD and Worldbank have launched a Green Growth strategy, which looks for ways to combine inclusive economic growth with a non-deteriorating environment. International development agencies, national governments, regional planners, but also internationally operating firms have to deal with the tension between development and growth on the one hand, and responsible use of resources on the other hand.

This has resulted in a wide variety of responses at the firm level, from foreign investments with the aim of securing resources to corporate social responsibility strategies. At the more aggregate level, analysts have been questioning the growth imperative (cf. Occupy Wall Street, Degrowth) - is growth obsolete?

Evaluate policies and firm strategies towards development and sustainable resource use:
In the 'Sustainability and Growth' track, you will learn how to analyze the sources of economic growth in a country or region, the barriers to growth and development they face, and the possible negative consequences of growth. You will be trained to evaluate policies and firm strategies towards development and sustainable resource use.

The track is closely linked to the Tilburg Sustainability Center, a multidisciplinary research and policy advise institute.

In these courses, you will learn how to evaluate people’s willingness to pay for environmental improvements, and how to measure the effectiveness of structural reform policies. You will write policy proposals regarding inequality and growth, educational policies, and innovation strategies. An example of a case you will be analyzing is investment in sustainable production methods in Vietnamese villages.

Career perspectives

This track is advised if you wish to pursue a career in international organizations (World Bank), national governments (Ministry of Development Cooperation, Ministry of the Environment), non-governmental organizations, or internationally oriented consultancy firms.

Examples of functions of recent graduates of this track:
•Consultant at the Inter-American Development Bank
•Credit Risk Analyst at FMO
•Consultant at The World Bank
•Senior Business Consultant at SimCorp
•Policy Advisor at CNV
•Strategy Consultant at The Boston Consulting Group
•Business Analyst at Argos Energies
•Consultant at Mercados EMI
•Business Consultant at First Consulting
•Analyst at PricewaterhouseCoopers PwC
•Junior Researcher at the University of Amsterdam
•Projectleader SEPA at IBC Business Consulting

You will then formulate your recommendations and present them to company leaders at the final client presentation. On completion you will receive feedback from your supervisor and an industry expert. Companies students have worked with include Google, Nike, Cobra Beer, InterContinental Hotels Group, Acer and Sainsbury’s.

Research project

The culmination of the learning process is your opportunity to undertake a research project, which can be either company-sponsored, or an empirical project in an area of marketing you are passionate about (usually involving direct research with either marketing professionals/managers or with customers).

BOSTON – SAN FRANCISCO – LONDON – DUBAI

Start your Master of International Business in Boston, San Francisco, London, or Dubai, then choose to explore any other two campuses as part of Hult's unique Global Campus Rotation.

Gain a uniquely global perspective by circling the world.

For the global generation, the new way to learn about the world is to experience it. Only Hult allows you to complete your Master degree while immersing yourself in up to three of the world’s most influential cities, including Boston, San Francisco, London, Dubai, New York, and Shanghai.

Global experience matters

Experience firsthand the business and cultural practices of the world’s most influential economies. Internationalize your resume while developing a broad network of contacts across multiple continents—you never know where your next career opportunity will come from.

Central locations in every city

Study in the heart of global commerce of each city. Our central campuses are situated where the influence, power, and culture of each city is. You’ll experience the business customs of the location firsthand, learn local business knowledge inside and outside the classroom, and develop a broad network of contacts across multiple continents.

Rotate without missing a beat in your program

Because we operate each location ourselves, you’ll rotate seamlessly between cities without worrying about cumbersome study abroad or exchange programs. You can relocate smoothly and your studies will be uninterrupted, regardless of where you rotate.

Curriculum

Our goal is that you will learn core business knowledge, develop leadership skills, specialize, and experience business culture in up to three global cities—all in one year.

Who is this program for?

Candidates who have recently graduated from university or college, as well as individuals with up to three years of work experience who want to gain a broad understanding in all areas of international business. This degree is designed as an overview of key business concepts and it therefore prepares you for a number of jobs in an array of fields.

Home campus options: Boston, San Francisco, London, Dubai (September-April)
