Become a Sustainability Change Agent

Sustainable Business and Innovation focuses on sustainability business challenges and technological and non-technological options that can be used to innovate in a sustainable way.

As part of this two-year Master's programme in Sustainable Business and Innovation, students learn about sustainability challenges and the technological and other options that businesses can use to work in a more environmentally and socially friendly manner. By reviewing the academic literature and theory, real-life examples, and business case studies, students acquire insight into the behaviour of organisations, including processes of organisational change and innovation.

Businesses increasingly face significant challenges and opportunities from environmental issues such as climate change, energy, and water and social issues such as labor and human rights, corruption, and transparency. Stakeholders in these businesses – including governments, shareholders, business customers, local communities, consumers, employees, and NGOs – are demanding that companies become more focused on sustainability for themselves and the communities they impact. Graduates from this programme understand how to help business and organisations in their journey toward making societies more sustainable. The course content is framed by life-cycle thinking, systems thinking, and long-term thinking.

The Sustainable Business and Innovation programme closely works with the BISS research group of the Copernicus Institute of Sustainable Development at Utrecht University. The investigations cover a wide range of issues related to sustainable development and innovation.

Note that this course is delivered by the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL).

The Postgraduate Certificate in Sustainable Business (PCSB) is a Master's-level graduate programme from the University of Cambridge. It equips senior and mid-career professionals and managers with the relevant skillsets to integrate sustainability thinking into business actions.

PCSB is widely regarded as one of the leading Master's-level programmes internationally for individuals who are seeking to enhance their ability to lead and influence change for sustainability, whilst also gaining an academic award.

The programme attracts strong, international cohorts of senior and mid-career professionals, predominantly from business. Because of this, PCSB alumni benefit from the world-class peer networking opportunities that the programme provides.

The programme spans a 9-month period (part-time) and is built around three short residential workshops, individual work-based assignments, and a group research project around an area of mutual relevance.

About the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL)

The University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL), an institute within the School of Technology, has run executive development programmes in sustainability for 25 years, with open programmes in the UK, Europe, North America, South America, South Africa and Australia, and customised programmes for many leading organisations.

Who is the course designed for?

The course has been designed for current and future leaders working in organisations that recognise the importance of sustainable development, and are committed to sharing their knowledge/experience and learning from others. It is an award of the University of Cambridge, and equivalent to one third of a Master’s degree.

It is assumed that participants will have a reasonably good general knowledge of some of the issues dealt with during the programme. However, it is not essential to have specialised knowledge, and it is not assumed that participants have direct responsibility for sustainability or related areas, such as CSR or environmental affairs.

Aims of the programme

Participants successfully completing the programme will:

- Gain a Postgraduate Certificate in Sustainable Business accredited by the University of Cambridge;
- Deepen their understanding of how sustainability issues impact on their sector, their organisation and their role;
- Develop the means to articulate the business case for sustainability, whilst balancing stakeholders' needs
- Analyse global business challenges, responses and organisational change;
- Build confidence to discuss emerging trends and issues which affect the business agenda with senior colleagues;
- Explore best practice and learn collaboratively with other professionals with different perspectives and experts in the field;
- Enhance their skills and experience in embedding sustainability in mainstream business operations and driving organisational change
- Become a member of the Cambridge Sustainability Network, which includes over 5,000 CISL alumni, faculty and contributors from around the world, who are leading the way in turning sustainability thinking into practice.

Students who complete the Postgraduate Certificate can then go on to complete the Postgraduate /diploma. The details of the Diploma are on the following website: http://www.cisl.cam.ac.uk/graduate-study/postgraduate-diploma-in-sustainable-business/pgdip-in-detail

Format

In recognition of the practical challenges of participants undertaking study whilst holding down a full-time job, the programme does not require prolonged periods away from the workplace. Besides the short residential workshops, the core of the programme is an individual piece of work-related research and the development of a strategic action plan that is relevant to the participant's organisation.

A group project helps to ensure that as much inter-organisational learning takes place as possible. An online Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) facilitates communication and collaboration between the short, intensive workshops.

The course runs for nine months and encompasses the following key elements:

- A three-week preparatory phase;
- Three residential workshops;
- Ongoing virtual and non-residential learning activities, including preparatory materials (readings / videos / audios) in advance of the residential workshops;
- Two individual assignments and a collaborative research project;
- Support and facilitation from a team of programme tutors;
- Informal and formal collaboration with fellow participants via email, teleconferences, face-to-face meetings, and the VLE.

In addition to attending the workshops, it is estimated that participants need to undertake at least 3–4 hours of work every week to complete the programme successfully.

Lectures: 40 hours
Seminars and classes: 4 hours
Small-group teaching: 6 hours
Supervision: 6 hours

Structure

Workshop 1: Understanding the challenges and developing the business case

- Environmental, social and economic pressures and drivers
- Sustainable development concepts and frameworks
- Developing a critical and analytical mind
- Building the business case for sustainability
- Identifying risks and opportunities

Workshop 2: Catalysing change beyond the organisation

- Systems thinking

Workshop 3: Taking action: implementation and driving change

- Sustainability as core business strategy
- Culture and governance
- Embedding and integration
- Resourcing and skills development
- Influencing and communication
- Leadership and ethics

Assessment

During the course students complete the following business-relevant assignments, each contributing one third to the final mark:

- Analysis paper, 3,000 words
- Strategic action plan, 3,000 words
- Group Project, 7,000 words

Continuation

PCSB is the equivalent to the first third of the Master of Studies in Sustainability Leadership programme. The topics covered correspond with those taught during the first Master's workshop and the assignments undertaken are similar to those completed in the first year of the Master's programme.

It is not necessary to complete a Postgraduate Certificate prior to applying for the Master’s. Furthermore, while completing a PCSB successfully may strengthen applications to the Master’s, it does not result in preferential access or negate the need to satisfy the Master’s-specific admissions requirements.

Overview

Please select a specialisation for more details:

Business, ethics and society

Business, ethics and society investigates and activates the role of business as ethical and social leaders. The specialisation equips students with an understanding of the theoretical foundations and practical issues of internal and external ethical and societal forces that businesses face, respond to and activate. Business, ethics and society especially develops students' critical engagement and leadership capabilities to manage diversity, inclusiveness, and work and life. These capacities are developed within a strong context of ethics and corporate responsibility, and the domestic and international environments in that organisations operate. The specialisation prepares students for active managerial roles within organisations in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors.

Commercialisation

Commercialisation is the process or cycle of introducing a new product or production method into the market. The commercialisation process or cycle can be applied in many different contexts, including: art, design, and architecture; arts and humanities; business and economics; education; engineering; information technology; law; medicine, nursing and health sciences; pharmacy and pharmaceutical sciences; and science and technology. The specialisation provides a comprehensive business-focused setting to help students develop the necessary business and entrepreneurial acumen and commercialisation knowledge to succeed. Commercialisation especially develops students' new venture finance, patenting, innovation, and wealth pathways skills and knowledge. The specialisation prepares students, particularly facilitated by the commercialisation project, for commercialisation and entrepreneurial roles within organisations in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors.

Information technology

The information technology discipline allows students to build upon the core program with six units dealing with current practices and emerging strategies for the application of information technology in business management. Students are introduced to management of the creation, storage, recall and dissemination of business records within organisation-wide frameworks and they will gain a high-level of understanding of the processes of project management. Units are taught by the Faculty of Information Technology.

Law and responsible business

The fortunes of a business can quickly turn around if it does not pay proper attention to the laws that regulate its organisation and activities. The law provides the framework for all aspects of business from the internal management of business organisations to their relationships with clients, consumers and the public. The units in this specialisation provide students with an understanding of the legal framework within which business operates and the fundamental laws that regulate business activities and transactions, with particular emphasis on how legal and social responsibility considerations should impact business decision-making.

Managing human capital

Managing human capital is the recognition of people as valuable contributors, and the systems and operations for investing in people to enhance their contributions. The specialisation equips students with an understanding of the theoretical foundations and practical issues of managing and developing people within an international context. Managing human capital develops students' strategic and operational people management knowledge and skills, particularly for diverse, inclusive, and productive workplaces. This specialisation prepares students for careers in human resource management, industrial relations, consulting, public sector management, and general people management roles.

Marketing

Marketing is a fun, dynamic, complex activity (and discipline) that focuses on providing value to both organisations and consumers. Very simply, marketing is about matching what an organisation has (or can do) with someone who wants it. Marketing is about selling, it is about advertising, but it also so much more. The study and practice of the 'so much more' is what makes marketing so interesting!

In today's dynamic and global business environment, marketing permeates all areas of operations and forms an integral element of business growth and achievement. Highly qualified, innovative and international marketing practitioners, supported by well researched and pertinent marketing knowledge, are increasingly in demand.

Project management

A project is a collection of activities and resources undertaken to achieve planned objectives, which could be defined in terms of time, quality and cost or economic outcomes. Project management is the process of ensuring defined goals are achieved in relation to a project. This specialisation provides graduates with the knowledge, technology and processes employed in project management that allow them to pursue such professional roles in industry and government. This specialisation will provide graduates with an understanding and ability to apply the theories and concepts of project management, and will assist in a variety of roles in industry or government. Graduates will be able to analyse requirements for the management of given projects, identify the applicable methods and develop innovative project management strategies and processes.

Quantitative business analysis

Students will be provided with advanced quantitative skills required to carry out statistical analysis in business, economics and finance. They will also develop skills to report on the findings of their quantitative analysis.

Risk management

Risk is defined by AS/NZS ISO 31000: 2009 as 'the effect of uncertainty on objectives'. The management of risk is an evolving discipline that builds on current knowledge in a diverse range of activities. The risk management specialisation focuses on operational and financial risk in today's commercial world. It provides extended skills in the strategic and process applications of risk management and prepares for the increasingly complex risk management issues faced in many areas of business and government. It prepares graduates for roles that are required to address business, insurance and financial risk. The range of units undertaken will greatly assist those seeking employment in managerial positions where risk management is an expanding field of practice.

Supply chain management

Supply chain management involves the coordination of people, organisations, technologies and processes to ensure optimal supply of products and services. This specialisation develops students' capacity to design and optimise supply chains, and to manage them to achieve strategic business outcomes. Supply chain management enhances students' skills and knowledge in innovation and improvement, business optimisation, services and operations management, and sustainable operations management. The specialisation prepares students for careers in supply chain management roles in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors.

Sustainability

The sustainability specialisation focuses on current practices and emerging strategies for improving corporate sustainability, particularly in social, economic and environmental domains. The units within this specialisation will provide insights into sustainability from the perspectives of governance, ethics and management. This specialisation is suited to those who want to enhance their knowledge and skills in both business and sustainability issues and who seek employment in environmental governance or corporate sustainability management. It will also suit those who want to enable organisational and individual change in support of sustainability.

You will also be encouraged to access recorded lectures and TED talks that provide a solid grounding for complex business and management concepts, while authentic written texts such as journal article papers help you to develop strategies for reading and understanding arguments from complex language and ideas.

Research-Rich Learning

The course combines a research-led and research-tutored learning approach offered by the English Language and Business modules respectively. This allows you to develop your academic skills gained in previous studies and enhance your intellectual and professional competences required for postgraduate study in Business and Management.

The modules have been developed to meet your specific needs, and are research-informed and highly contemporary. Lectures and seminars are interactive to ensure that you fully understand how to apply the theories that you have learned, and to give you the opportunity to demonstrate your learning and appreciation of business issues.

Give Your Career An Edge

Through this course we will provide you with a detailed understanding and knowledge of how business works, enhancing your attractiveness to potential employers through a specific approach to your personal development.

A key purpose of the course is to develop skills in areas such as academic writing, learning styles, working in teams, developing critical thinking skills, understanding research and how to make effective use out of journal articles in the specific context of business and management. The modules are research-informed and highly contemporary, with appropriate links to enhancing employability signposted throughout.

Your Future

Modules on the course are specifically designed to enhance your reflection and evaluation skills, to prepare you for entry to postgraduate study in Business and Management. Classroom-based sessions will provide an opportunity to develop discussion and reflection, teamwork, presentation, and leadership skills. You will be able to capitalise on past academic and employment experience, and become exposed to a variety of business sectors and management scenarios.

Although the course is explicitly designed as a pathway to the MSc Business suite of courses, the skills practised are transferrable and will provide a strong grounding in business, management and leadership roles. As one of our graduates you will benefit from the Business and Law Schools’ Alumni Networking Platform, and from our close ties with the regional and national business communities.

What is the 'Master of Business Engineering' all about?

A business engineer is trained for analyzing and solving business problems from a quantitative and managerial point of view. The programme belongs to the domain of business economics and is management oriented: students learn how companies function, how business processes should be designed and how business activities can be optimally organized. The managerial focus is combined with strong analytical skills and a profound understanding of how business and (technological) innovation processes work. This integration of disciplines is of high relevance to production environments as well as to service companies (e.g. consultancy or ICT).

A business engineer is an interdisciplinary manager with an extended problem solving toolbox and a holistic view on modern companies in today’s economic, legal and social context. With a capacity for analytical thought, management and communication skills and an eye for sustainable opportunities, business engineers are able to shape the future of companies and organisations.

Structure

The Master of Science in Business Engineering is organised at two campuses: Brussels and Leuven. The programmes share a common structure and have the same compulsory courses. Each campus offers different courses in the majors, minors, and electives. Students on one campus have the option to follow some of the courses at the other campus.

 Majors offered in Leuven:

  • Accounting and Financial Management
  • Risk and Finance
  • Marketing
  • Production and Logistics
  • Data Science and Business Analytics
  • Industry, Global Value Chains and New Technologies
  • Technology and Entrepreneurship

 Majors offered in Brussels:

  • Quantitative Data Analytics
  • Technology and Innovation Management
  • Finance

This is an initial Master's programme and can be followed on a full-time or part-time basis. 

 International Experience

Do you feel like expanding your horizons? We encourage you to study abroad at one of the faculty’s exclusive partner universities in the first semester of the second year. Increasingly, employers value young professionals who are familiar with doing business in a multicultural and multilingual setting. Therefore, the faculty has a strong international focus with a flourishing participation of students in summer schools and exchange programmes. Make your experience truly international by studying in different parts of the world.

More information on the various international experiences the faculty has to offer can be found on this website.

Is this the right programme for me?

Are you a future business engineer? Then most probably you feel at ease with the following characteristics:

  • You imagine yourself as the moving force in a company or organization (this can be your own company, a multinational, a family business, a government service, a school, etc.).
  • You're an enterprising person and you aim at perfection in all your endeavors. You want to improve the functioning of companies and organizations, with clear and sustainable objectives in the long run, and with an eye for the social context in which companies operate.
  • You are an innovative manager. You want to acquire knowledge about other disciplines (math, science, technology) in order to better support the management of companies.
  • You're a global manager. Globalization demands great efforts of companies and organizations, and you feel at ease in an environment with enriching international contacts.

Career perspectives

 Graduates of the MSc in Business Engineering mostly take up managerial and/or research positions in business, national and international institutions, and at universities. Business engineers usually start their careers in technical expert positions within interdisciplinary management teams. They are typically hired to optimise production processes, to develop quantitative models in financial institutions, or to market technological innovations. They are also able to take up more traditional management tasks, armed with the ability to support key decisions using quantitative analyses. Business engineers quickly move up to executive functions in various management domains in companies and organisations. Given the variety of skills acquired, they are highly sought after by a wide range of companies – from start-ups and small firms to multinational corporations – for various positions in Belgium and abroad.

Teaching is backed up by a well-designed support system that helps ensure a successful learning journey. We make sure that extensive feedback, from both tutors and peers, is built into the course.

During the second year you’ll undertake an internship or consultancy project for a whole semester. You’ll follow this up with an Applied Management Work Investigation Report that will critically analyse an issue related to your practical experience.

Newcastle Business School provides first-class teaching in a world-class environment. From social spaces and hub areas to lecture theatres and exhibition spaces, our facilities are exceptional. The University’s library was ranked #2 in the UK in the Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey for 2015.

The University has also invested heavily in IT labs and facilities. Business software includes ARIS Express Business Process Modelling, various SAS applications, Microsoft Project, specialist decision-making software, and Google Analytics.

Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) is embedded throughout the course with tools such as the ‘Blackboard’ eLearning Portal and electronic reading lists that will guide your preparation for seminars and independent research. Our use of lecture capture software will help you revise challenging material.

At Northumbria it’s easy to put your learning into practice. In addition to the Advanced Practice element of the course, further opportunities for experiential learning are available through our Student Engagement Centre which promotes volunteering and placements. The Business Clinic enables our students to participate in a ‘consultancy firm’ to provide advice for our region’s businesses on issues that include finance and investment.

Research-Rich Learning

As a master’s student you’ll develop your research skills to a new and higher level. Your research supervisor will help you submit a proposal for your master’s dissertation or consultancy project and then discuss its development through to completion in the final semester.

If you decide on a master’s consultancy project, rather than a dissertation, you’ll still undertake primary and desk research. Through your reading, reflection and research, you’ll be expected to show a deep understanding of the issues that are involved in the client brief.

Throughout your course you’ll be an active participant in the on-going research agenda that’s at the heart of Newcastle Business School. With conferences and research events regularly taking place, and with staff discussing their own research as it relates to the topics you’ll study, there’s a strong emphasis on engaging in up-to-date enquiry-based learning.

Give Your Career An Edge

Overall the course aims to develop you as a leader and manager, with a clear understanding of the theory and practice of global business, and how to overcome the challenges faced by managers of international businesses.

As part of this, the course includes two modules that are focused on developing global management competencies. Topics during these modules include emotional intelligence, cultural awareness and the ability to work in diverse groups and teams, as well as project management and decision making.

A further module, ‘Academic and Professional Development’, has a specific focus on self-development. It includes formal sessions with our Careers and Employment Service which offers a range of workshops, one-to-one advice, and networking opportunities.

In the second year of the course you’ll be gaining workplace experience and putting your new learning into practice. You’ll develop a track record of achievement that will help you stand out from other job applicants. We’ll help you find an internship / project that matches your interests and career aspirations, building on Newcastle Business School’s very successful background in placing students.

A master’s course that takes two years, instead of just one, will carry particular weight with employers. They’ll understand that you’ll have a deeper understanding of topics as well as more hands-on practical experience.

Your Future

Our graduates typically go into graduate positions with multinational companies or smaller businesses with operations and supply chains in several countries. A number of graduates have gone on to work in their family business.

Some employers require completion of a two-year master’s degree and this course will meet their requirement.

If you decide to start up your own business, it’s good to know that the combined turnover of our graduates’ start-up companies is higher than that of any other UK university.

The course could also lead you to a postgraduate research degree such as an MPhil, PhD and Professional Doctorate.

Whatever you decide to do, you will have the transferable skills that employers expect from a master’s graduate from Northumbria University. These include the ability to tackle complex issues through conceptualisation and undertaking research, the ability to contribute to new processes and knowledge, and the ability to formulate balanced judgements when considering incomplete or ambiguous data.
