Are you excited to start your sustainability journey or deepen your existing knowledge and experience?
Together with the MBA faculty of the University of St. Gallen, we offer our community two MBA courses in sustainability: “Mastering the Sustainable Business Imperative: Consulting Roadtrip” and “Impact Investing“.
These two MBA course are exclusively open to GreenBuzz community without the need to participate in other MBA courses.
Mastering the Sustainable Business Imperative: Consulting Roadtrip, 15-18 May 2018
In post-industrialisation age, information is abundant and resources scarce. Firms can thrive or die based on their innovation in using natural resources efficiently, avoid scandals, and build strong relations with clients, suppliers, staff, and regulators. We establish a brief but solid research-based foundation, before we go into firms that are world-market leaders in their field; e.g. Barry Callebaut (Cocoa), South Pole Group (emission reduction projects), Julius Baer (private banking). We sit down with management and develop solutions for specific sustainability-related challenges. In the evening, we have the chance to meet with sustainability professionals.
Application deadline: 15 April 2018
