Description of the programme
The global world is in a constant process of change - a good CO₂ balance, recyclability and energy-efficient production, logistics and goods are important success factors in business today. The result is: sustainable factors continue to rise. In our Master's programme "Applied Sustainability Management" you will learn to assess, develop and implement aspects of sustainability. You will be enabled to think and act with foresight. In addition to the theoretical aspects, your teaching will focus on insights and development processes for project management, communication and international cooperation as well as transformation processes.
Specifically, you will learn:
Design transformation processes for sustainable social development and manage their implementation.
Analyse and evaluate structures and processes with regard to social, ecological and economic aspects.

Classroom sessions take place in blocks every 3 weeks during the semester. In addition, courses take place twice a week in the evening (approx. 18.00 - 20.00 pm).
