In our course you’ll explore strategic sustainable management and its environmental, social and economic dimensions. Learning from real-life situations and inspirational practitioners, your studies will focus on three key areas:

  • sustainable business
  • strategic management
  • entrepreneurship to lead sustainable change

Unique, practical learning

We focus on the challenges and opportunities of transformative and practical management for sustainability. There’s a balance of theory and practice to help you to prepare for jobs in sustainable management and corporate social responsibility. Our partnerships with sustainably managed organisations provide you with the chance to see how these practices work in the real world.

You’ll be immersed in the practical aspects of sustainable business, acquiring skills, knowledge and expertise on sustainability management by working with real-world organisations. These include large companies, small and medium enterprises, the public sector and NGOs. You’ll learn from experienced sustainable managers, innovators, entrepreneurs and policy makers during the teaching modules.

By the end of the course, you’ll have an in-depth understanding of sustainable management and its opportunities and challenges.
