Program overview

The Diploma in Sustainable Business will enable you to comprehend and respond to global challenges from the perspective of business as a force for good.

The Diploma in Sustainable Business is a one-year, part-time executive program which includes not only subject knowledge in the field of sustainable business but also leading change and project management experience as part of the course.

Program Objectives

  • You will undertake a transformational journey of self-discovery through personal development classes and reflective thinking. You will redefine leadership from the perspective of leading yourself and others towards a better world.
  • You will discover state-of-the-art concepts and tools for tackling global challenges related to the economic, environmental, and social impact of business. You will turn business on its head and will explore an outside-in perspective which redefines business strategies as being driven by sustainability challenges.
  • You will move beyond academic exploration from day one and will have the chance to make a positive contribution to a real organization within the program. You will apply what you learn straight away by immersing yourself in a 10-month company consulting project with fellow course participants.

The Consulting Project is an integral part of the program experience and a stepping stone in your preparation as a business sustainability professional. Consulting projects are given by organizations based in Switzerland and include a wide range of strategically relevant challenges in product development, purchasing, supply chain, market analysis, labelling, employer branding, and communications.
