The SUSTAINABILITY specialization

Sustainability goes far beyond "green" lifestyles or short-lived hypes. It encloses ecology, social and cultural values, geographies, architectures, technology and politics. In economy, product and service innovations have sprung up like mushrooms. Exploitation, fake promises and foul play included. You will learn to critically reflect, relate and manage these new developments with empathy and responsibility.

Tobias Hess, Management (M.A.)

"Sustainability is perfect for those who are interested in this up and rising topic. After all, everything will be connected to sustainability in the future."
