Comments about MSc Management (Sustainability) - At the institution - Sheffield - South Yorkshire
The MSc in Management (Sustainability) helps to prepare managers for business in the 21st century. The pressing need for economic development that does not cost the earth means major problems for the established ways of doing business: but problems can also become business opportunities. To fully exploit these opportunities, it is not only the techniques and tools of business management that need to change: values, attitudes and cultures need to change too. This programme shows just what changes of this magnitude involve through studies of Corporate Social Responsibility, Sustainable Business Models and a dissertation focused on the management of sustainable business.
