Course content

"Empower yourself to become a change-maker for a sustainable future!"

Programme presentation:

The scale and urgency of the environmental, social, and economic challenges facing the world today require that organisations engage in a wide range of transformations and take ownership of sustainability issues throughout their value chains. These transformations must drive sustainable development, be of benefit to all and be present in all aspects of organisations if meaningful change is to have a lasting impact.

In this programme, students will acquire knowledge and develop skills to proactively address sustainability issues and implement sustainability practices in a variety of organisations, ranging from start-ups, SMEs and large corporations to non-profit organisations and public administrations.

The MSc Sustainability Transformations will address a wide range of sustainability and change topics impacting businesses today, such as Responsible Supply Chain, Energy Procurement, Socially Responsible Human Resource Management, Green Marketing, Sustainable Finance, Circular Economy and Business Ethics. Corporate decarbonisation, compliance and regulation, as well as Change Management will also be at the heart of the course, as organisational change will also depend on the support and action from the men and women who make them up.

Programme objectives:

The MSc Sustainability Transformations aims to provide first-class training in sustainability to students wishing to give meaning to their careers, to contribute to a sustainable future and create a better world for tomorrow.

Upon completion of the programme, students will be able to:

  • Lead both CSR and ESG transformations: Define and steer the implementation of a wide range of corporate policies aiming at reducing environmental and energy impacts, carbon footprints and improving social and societal impact of organisations.
  • Diagnose, monitor, innovate, and improve: Conduct an ESG audit and make a clear diagnosis, identify the right levers for action, drive change and transformation, create new green business models within and across an organisation with key stakeholders and introduce new criteria to evaluate non-financial organisational performance.
  • Manage both CSR and ESG compliance: Lead the compliance process of the firm in a context of ever tightening CSR and ESG regulatory frameworks.

They can offer a maximum loan of €15,000 to all students up to 28 years old, be they French, or citizens of the E.U. or the European Economic Area, regardless of income or parental/third-party guarantees.
