The Focus Area Sustainable Society explained
What are companies responsible for, which negative externalities are acceptable, and who is paying the price for these consequences? Recently, this discussion has changed and become more intense. The Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations are moving up quickly on the agendas of top managers and policy makers as well. Many companies struggle to redefine themselves, and are looking for ways to contribute.
Completing the Focus Area Sustainable Society gives you specialised knowledge to help you understand these emerging themes and successfully contribute to the strategic developments in this field.
To meet the requirements of the Focus Area Sustainable Society you will need to:
- register with one of the focus area coordinators, see below
- successfully complete two electives related to sustainable society from the predetermined list
- write your Master's thesis on a topic related to this particular focus area
- important: to add this focus area to your diploma, you must include the focus area in the application for approval of your Master's programme in Progress
Make sure to fill out the registration form for the focus area coordinator, Dr. Rieneke Slager for MSc IB&M students, Prof. Bert Scholtens for MSc Finance and MSc IFM students or dr. B.C. (Björn) Mitzinneck for MSc BA (except the Health profile). After your registration you will receive detailed information about the procedure.
