MSc in Sustainablility and Social Innovation
Although today’s environmental and social issues are well-known, they pose an extraordinary challenge:
> Global warming (which may be irreversible and requires drastic reduction in greenhouse gas emissions)
> The scissor effect between increasing consumption of natural resources and scarcity of these resources such as energy, water, biodiversity...
> Growing socio-economic inequalities (that lead to geopolitical turmoil)
> Ethical crises that result in lack of confidence in corporations and institutions.
In light of these complex circumstances that concern us all, strong institutional, economic, and social changes are necessary to ensure that production of goods and services remains just as efficient, but become more sustainable in the long term.
Making marginal changes is no longer sufficient; more radical transformations are necessary, which strongly impact corporate strategies, as we need a fundamental shift in the way we do business. We believe that anticipating these changes makes companies more creative and offers them many new business opportunities.
Our ambition through this program is to train future changemakers and leaders to acquire global vision of sustainable management to lead these transformations and build a resilient economy through innovative models.
