Succeed with Sustainable Choices
Sustainability in business promotes organizational innovation, enhances risk management, enables sustainable growth, and helps to secure feasible conditions for business in the long term. Sustainability competence has become a crucial part of the basic business competence of every successful company. What sustainability choices should be made in your organization to support growth in a sustainable way? How do you align business and stakeholder goals in a sustainable way? And do you identify the areas that promote sustainability in your own work?
In the four programs, Fundamentals of Corporate Sustainability, Sustainable Supply Chain Management, Social and Digital Sustainability, and Sustainability Reporting you get to extensively develop your understanding of the different aspects of corporate sustainability. In the different programs, you will become acquainted with the essential concepts and operating models around corporate sustainability, which will help to outline the whole field of corporate sustainability. Each program examines business critically from a different perspective and the contents complement each other to form a holistic view of the key areas of corporate sustainability.
During the program, you will learn to identify the choices and stakeholders that are relevant to sustainable business in your own organization, and you will learn to see the big picture of corporate sustainability. How do individual factors affect your own organization? The common goal is to create an understanding of the complexity of the field of sustainability and to realize where your own organization is currently situated in the sustainability roadmap. During the program, you will work on assignments, which allow you to implement the learnings in practice during the program and supports you in developing sustainability planning for your own organization.
If you want to continue your studies in the Aalto Executive MBA program, you can transfer up to 18 ECTS study credits from the Sustainable Business program within four years of completing the credits.
