Program benefits

Developing and implementing realistic strategies for a sustainable organization
Environmental impact assessment of an organization in all the sustainability dimensions (ESG)
Analysis of sustainability practices across the value chain
Based on my experience working for various international (UNDP, OECD, World Bank, EU Commision), national organisations and projects, I am more and more convinced that there is no healthy society without healthy business and vice versa. Having this in mind, the programme was designed to provide students with a strong foundation in sustainability. I believe that it is possible to increase business value and have a positive environmental and social impact at the same time. During this programme, the students will learn from best international and national lecturers and practitioners, will develop skills allowing them to assess and oversee many diverse ESG practices within companies and become experts of sustainability.
