International Sustainability Management
ATTENTION: This study program can no longer be chosen. For the wintersemester 2018/19, it has been substituted by the program International Business with its three specializations Intercultural Management, Responsible Business and Marketing.
Sustainability is the central challenge of the 21st century in business and society, both local as well as on the global level.
Sustainability to me is an ecological sound economic development that is designed socially inclusive and culturally sensitive – by internationally and interdisciplinary trained people with a passion to think and work together and find new solutions for the great challenges of our time.
I am especially interested in issues related to the ecological and societal responsibility of business in the light of globalization and climate change. Of key importance to me is taking into account an intercultural perspective on different ethical questions of a sustainable development in business and society.
With this study program I will be well equipped to become a pioneer in the field of International Sustainability Management. I will acquire in-depth knowledge allowing me to communicate and work successfully with all relevant actors in the field of sustainable business – with corporate managers just as well as with representatives of NGOs and national and international institutions.
Later I will work on all aspects of sustainability management with companies of different industries, with consultancies and innovative start-ups, with think-tanks and public institutions.

Karlshochschule opens up a whole new, exciting world with each module in the International Sustainability Management study program.
