Our world is changing. Climate change is already having a visible impact, and biodiversity losses are becoming distinctly observable. Businesses as well as society at large thus acknowledge the need to assume our responsibility for a sustainable management of the economy and our livelihoods.

The Master in International Sustainability Management equips you with the knowledge and skills to manage this change. It offers a broad portfolio of classes on the problems we face, solutions to discuss, and management tools to deal with the transition.

The programme therefore starts with an introduction to sustainability research and natural science foundations on climatology and ecosystems. Alongside an initial acquaintance with the business side of sustainability management, the Master addresses the economics perspective on resource exploitation and emission control on which government regulations are formed. The curriculum then continues to alternate between business frameworks for a sustainability transition and topics such as NGO management or sustainable governance.

The two-year programme is taught at ESCP’s Berlin and Paris campuses, with two fixed terms in each city. In term 5 you will write your Master's thesis. Term 6 allows you to do an internship wherever in the world you like. The class composition is highly international. This blend and the mobile lifestyle will ideally prepare you for a global career.

Discussions and a high level of team work will equip you with the interpersonal skills to argue your position and persuade others, as well as collaborate cross-culturally with your peers. Student societies and associations offer the possibility to engage sustainably right away, offering you an ever-growing network and leadership skills.

The programme is designed for future business leaders, but might just as well guide you to a career in consulting, governance, politics or an NGO. Work where you can make the impact you want.
