Máster of Science in Sustainability Management

The subjects that make up the Master of Science in Sustainability Management are taught using an effective mix of teaching methodologies:

  • Practical case studies
  • Masterclasses with experts
  • Tutorials and monitoring of progress
  • Oral presentations
  • Class discussions and group activities
  • Visits to companies and institutions


To successfully complete this master’s degree course, students must have passed all subjects and defended their Master’s Thesis before a panel of experts.

The assessment criteria for each subject will be set at the start of term. The assessment system is set by each lecturer and may vary from subject to subject, but in general it comprises ongoing evaluation, individual assignments and written work, oral presentations and a final exam, among others.

Regular class attendance and completion of all practical exercises and compulsory work forms part of the system of assessment.


Master’s degrees, postgraduate courses and onsite courses at ESCI-UPF and UPF-BSM combine students’ active participation with the teaching of theorical and practical concepts. This student-centred learning requires students to solve and comment on case studies in class and apply their acquired knowledge to real-life situations. Aula Global, the virtual campus, is used to ensure continuity between onsite classes
