Foundations of International Business & Sustainability

Foundations of International Business & Sustainability

Programme Overview

The world is changing. Science has shown that the impacts of climate change are happening now, hitting populations from the Bahamas to Mozambique through to Australia, Western Europe, and the United States. Global temperatures are rising because of carbon emissions, largely caused by human activity. International reports indicate that we must limit global warming to 1.5° C by the end of this century to avoid irreversible and catastrophic impacts. For this to occur, carbon dioxide emissions need to decline by about 45 percent by 2030 and reach net zero in 2050.


While the goal is within reach, it requires urgent and unprecedented social and economic transformation, which will lead to a radical redesign of the way we live, travel and do business. This programme is designed for students around the world with a focus on international business and sustainability. It includes interactive lectures, class exercises and tutoring sessions corresponding to case studies that participants address in groups and defend at the end of the course.
