The Master of Science in Sustainability Management program is structured around four core pillars to provide a comprehensive understanding of sustainability.

Students will engage with all compulsory subjects and have the flexibility to select six optional subjects from these modules. A dedicated tutor will be on hand to guide you through these choices, aligning them with your personal ambitions and professional interests.


Students will enrich their learning journey with our curricular internships in companies, recognised as two optional subjects. These provide practical insights and hands-on experience, enhancing the understanding of sustainability in a real-world context.

The Master's Final Project will punctuate the academic journey in the second and third terms, a chance to showcase the knowledge the student has amassed throughout the program.
