Sustainability Consulting Project
The Diploma in Sustainable Business and E/MBA in Sustainable Business programs includes a 10-month consulting project with a real company and consulting contract in the area of business sustainability. The project consists of approximately 250 hours and replaces the traditional thesis. It significantly complements the academic courses, ensuring that you have not only acquired a broad expertise in sustainability, but have also completed a complex, real-life consulting project during your studies.
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, labeling, employer branding, and communications. Projects are assigned to small, multi-faceted teams of 3-5 course participants. Teams are mentored by experienced faculty, providing continuous support and feedback throughout the program. The project is to be completed between March and November with two intermediate presentations in May and in August, and the final presentation in November.
