YOUR SUSTAINABLE MANAGEMENT STUDIES. FOR THE WORLD OF TOMORROW.

Management is the art of solving the challenges of a complex world and taking into account the most diverse influences and conditions in decision-making processes. Today, the success of really good management is no longer measured only by figures and profits. Responsibility for the social and ecological impacts of a company's activities is increasingly coming into focus. Sustainability and profit are not a trade-off for modern companies, but the only viable path to a sustainable future. This is exactly what you will learn in your master's programme in Sustainable Management. You will address the classic business management disciplines and fields of action and expand them to include ecological, social and ethical perspectives. Your degree programme gives you a 360° view. This is how you can learn to manage sustainably! 

First, you will acquire a sound business and economic basis in your Sustainable Management study programme. Then you choose your focus from the classic business administration disciplines. The elective modules offer you individualised opportunities to expand your basic business knowledge with your own ideas and perspectives. With your M.A. in Sustainable Management, you complete a comprehensive business degree programme, but expand the usual canon of subjects to include social responsibility and aspects of sustainability. This means that you are interdisciplinary and functionally broader. You can develop your own ideas and actively shape the business world of tomorrow.  

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