The 4 semester (incl. Master Thesis) MBA program Sustainable Business Development is specifically focused on the identification and evaluation of new growth opportunities and on using the right methods for successful implementation in this constantly changing world. As might be expected in these turbulent times, many companies are largely focusing on maintaining business continuity, especially in their core. However, more than ever it is essential to prepare companies - from start-ups, small and medium-sized enterprises to internationally active corporations - to set on innovative and sustainable business development in these times of crisis. Working on it today is the key to unlock post crisis growth and to be ready to answer questions of tomorrow (digitalization, climate changes, energy crisis, consumer needs and behaviors, etc.).

Überblick über den Studiengang

Sustainability and digitalization as drivers of transformations

Sustainability and digitalization are of crucial importance throughout the whole program. While various modules provide theoretical knowledge, a clear focus of the program is to convey the connection between business decisions from an economic point-of-view with the environmental and socio-cultural perspective in order to move towards a circular economy.

You will learn how to design and apply processes to make use of the exponential data growth (data economy) when it comes to business decisions. Digital innovations and transformations not only require the transfer of specialist knowledge, but also require the strengthening of judgement abilities and personality development.
