Are you motivated to help businesses make the change to a sustainable future? Do you want to signal excellence and innovativeness to your future employers? The Honours programme Sustainability is a challenging addition to your Business Administration Master’s degree.
This 15EC Honours programme is open to highly motivated MSc BA students with a passion for sustainability and a strong drive to make a difference in the business world. You will use core business skills from your Master’s specialisation track to address environmental and social issues, and help businesses create impact.
Creating a better and sustainable future for all is one of the biggest challenges of our time. To achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, we need companies to take up their responsibility. This is already forcing firms to create new ways of thinking about products, technologies, processes and business models. Businesses must bring these ideas into practice by innovating designs, operations, marketing, logistics and services throughout the global value chain, and the entire product life cycle.
In order to do this, they need leaders who know what being a sustainable organisation entails, and what is necessary to get there.
The Honours programme Sustainability is your 1st big step in becoming a leader in sustainability. If you are ambitious and ready to put in the extra work, this programme is a great challenge and a perfect chance to stand out to future employers.
The Honours programme (15EC) occurs concurrently with your 1-year MSc Business Administration, adding the following courses and projects to your study programme:
Create an entrepreneurial and innovative sustainable business model in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals. You and your team will present your solution to the programme’s advisory board of leaders in sustainability.
Building upon ABS’ existing relationship with an Indonesian university, you can participate in a week-long course on sustainable entrepreneurship in developing markets.
Create a series of site visits with fellow students and meet leaders in sustainability. Learn from best practices, such as green businesses, LEED certified builders, city planners, environmental regulators and more. Sites and opportunities around Amsterdam are endless.
Create a seminar series with fellow students, presenting eminent sustainability scholars, policy experts and business leaders.
More information on how to apply will be available soon. The Sustainability Honours programme is only available to students starting their MSc Business Administration in September 2020.
This Honours programme Sustainability is an addition to the 8 tracks in the MSc Business Administration.
