Study Strategy & Sustainability today! Shape the world tomorrow!

A company, an NGO, a government agency - any organization needs a strategy how to achieve its objectives succesfully and make a lasting impact.

At the same time, today, no organization can succeed without a clear and strong focus on sustainability. Sustainability is not a trend. It is a fundamental challenge. This challenge won't disappear in the near future, nor will sustainable development lose its relevance in the long run. However, for organizations it offers both opportunities and threats. It must be a strategic objective for any organization, for any manager, for any employee.

The M.Sc. SAS integrates both of these perspectives into one program. An English language master degree that sees sustainability as a strategic priority for modern organizations and strategy as the essential element for ecologically and socially sustainable management.
