The growing environmental impact of transport systems, as well as their energy voracity, require new approaches and new concepts. This MBA offers an integrative design across disciplines, addressing a range of different perspectives. The theory and practice-driven approach gives students both a conceptual understanding and the skills needed to tackle practical problems, covering the needs of strategy development, analysis and implementation, complex decision making and project management.

The master program is taught over a period of three semesters. The first two semesters include lectures, tutorials, seminars and excursions. The program will be completed in the 3rd semester by writing and defending a master thesis. The first semester is dedicated to the fundamentals of mobility and sustainability, considering these issues from different perspectives such as economic factors, social and managerial elements, and naturally including technological drivers. In the second semester, trends and the future of transport as well as the transition toward sustainable mobility will be the main focuses, which encompasses also the issue of governance and management of complex structures. A lecture series will provide world-based case studies. The third semester is devoted to the Master Thesis. Elective courses for specialization are offered.
