Online MBA „Sustainability Management“

Sustainable development is considered one of the key societal challenges of the 21st century. We face complex challenges in this regard: Energy costs are rising with potential supply insecurities, critical infrastructures are increasingly stressed and overloaded, i.e., by climate-related extreme weather events. People are increasingly concerned about these developments and are looking for sustainable solutions. Hence, sustainability aspects play a decisive role in buying decisions in B2B and B2C markets.

At the same time, regulatory pressure is rising. The transformation to a post-fossil economy must be mastered, production processes and logistics must be changed, all stakeholders must be actively involved, and progress must be transparently measured and reported.

Can all these challenges be mastered at all? The answer is clearly yes – But we know the best sustainability strategies, the most convincing concepts and the most effective instruments and know how to apply them successfully.

The MBA „Sustainability Management“ provides you with exactly this necessary knowledge, the required tools and the relevant implementation skills. Developed in an intensive exchange between FAU and Siemens AG, it combines the best of science and industry in a unique and innovative way.

When you choose FAU’s Sustainability MBA, you start a one-and-a-half-year qualification phase full of intensive work, new insights and inspiring experiences. Join us and be ready to shape the world of tomorrow! We are looking forward to being your premium partner in executive education
