Why study this programme?

This specialisation focuses on how the private sector shapes our sustainable society. More and more businesses believe that they have a responsibility to tackle environmental changes. But how do businesses and markets deal with the ethical and societal responsibility for sustainability? How can governments make sure that companies consider the environment while trying to make profit? Or should the pressure to think about the environment come from NGO’s or consumers? Within this specialisation, you will learn about innovation management and new business models in environmentally sustainable economies.
