About studies

The Executive MBA Decarbonisation and Sustainable Business is a career development programme, aimed at business professionals, with more than 7 years of business experience. The 3 semesters (18 months), part-time Executive MBA reflects the complexity of the strategic decision-making process, and immerses leaders in the opportunities and risks of sustainable development.

Sustainable development is one of the greatest challenges of modern business. Both climate change and huge social inequalities generate numerous threats, but they also provide opportunities. Future business success will depend on how companies cope with these challenges, and adapt to the needs of society and the environment. The aim of the Executive MBA Decarbonisation and Sustainable Business programme is to prepare business leaders for a broad spectrum of social and environmental challenges, and to equip them with the competences necessary, to lead business transformation, as well as build their advantages on responsibility and sustainability.

To get to net zero, we need to be smarter, more visionary, more decisive, and more collaborative than ever before. We need new methodology and new insights. We need ‘Sustainability Thinking’. Our Executive MBA Decarbonisation and Sustainable Business will help future and current business leaders embrace proactive and innovative knowledge of sustainability, resulting in competitive advantage, and strong resilience for their companies, as well as a positive impact for society.

The study program

The aim of the programme is to prepare students to effectively lead, co-ordinate, and implement organisational changes related to sustainable development, and decarbonisation activities in all functioning areas of society.

Graduates of the Executive MBA Decarbonisation and Sustainable Business studies will be distinguished by practical knowledge, and skills acquired during innovative and interactive lectures, workshops, and projects. They will receive the specific tools necessary, to build strong personal and expert brands in sustainable business management within various industries. Thus, our graduates will significantly increase their chances for promotion, higher salaries, and discover new opportunities for professional growth.
