The success of good management is no longer measured only by raw numbers and profits. For modern companies, sustainability and profit are not contradictory terms. On the contrary, they are indispensable for putting the company on a secure footing for the future. As an MBA in Sustainable Management, you will be familiar with all the classic business management disciplines and fields of action and expand them to include ecological, social and ethical perspectives.

First of all, you will complete the normal programme of an MBA course. This means that you will deal with the topics of leadership, performance measurement, strategic management as well as business ethics and corporate governance. Then, in the module "Sustainable Business Administration and Value Creation", you will develop a new perspective on the topics of management and entrepreneurship. You will learn about alternative approaches to classical business administration and define the new role of companies in society, of course, not only in theory, but also in business management practice. You will apply the approaches of sustainable management directly to rethink the value chains of companies. Building on this knowledge, you will develop sustainable concepts for business models and corporate strategies. To do this, you will work with the appropriate tools with which you will be able to evaluate challenges and potentials of change. You will critically question existing business models. Eventually, you will raise your newly acquired knowledge to an international level. You will gain an overview of the current global challenges for companies in the context of sustainable development. In the process, you will learn the latest scientific findings and become familiar with national and international regulations. Finally, you will be able to apply this in-depth knowledge to your capstone project.

Information on accreditation and state approval can be found on the sub-page of the degree program.
