This Certified Program in Sustainable Management provides a holistic picture to understand the role of corporations and of individuals within social-ecological systems. Therefore, the student will be taught at the macro (society), meso (business) and micro (individual) level to understand interdependence between the natural environment, organizations and the individual. The aim of this program is not only to increase your Know How in Sustainable Management but above all to experience it through real-life exercises and group interaction. Our dynamic approach means we will leave the seminar room behind and take the learning experience into the nature environment. This creative methodology will be used to link rational thinking with creativity to unlock innovation.
