The department of Business-Society Management contributes to the curriculum of both the Bachelor of Science in International Business Administration (IBA) programme and the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (Bedrijfskunde) programme.
Understanding the global challenges of sustainability is a vital skill for any future leader. Sustainability issues such as climate change, global inequality, social injustice and resource scarcity are amongst those central to the corporate strategy of today’s multinational businesses. These concerns of the wider society undoubtedly carry threats to the way in which many businesses currently operate, but they equally present new business opportunities to provide solutions and take advantage of a rapidly changing business world.
Our MSc Global Business & Sustainability is designed specifically for a new generation of leaders with the capacity to think critically about the sustainability challenges facing business and society both locally and globally. In this programme we bring students into close contact with the global frontrunners in corporate sustainability, with governmental organisations and with the non-profit sector. Our graduates gain theoretical knowledge alongside enhance managerial capabilities and skills to prepare for an international business career with meaningful impact in a wide variety of sectors.
Should you have any questions related to the content of our programme, please do not hesitate to visit us or to contact our MScBA coordinator, who will be happy to answer any of your questions.
