🌿 Going Green: Company Level Changes microdegree programme starts
Our newest microdegree program, "Going Green: Company Level Changes," empowers participants to lead sustainable development within their organizations, reducing environmental impact, fostering social responsibility, and ensuring long-term profitability. The program imparts knowledge in ethical decision-making, supporting corporate reputation, and addressing ethical and legal challenges. Understanding product life cycle design and sustainable marketing opens the door to the development of sustainable products and responsible marketing strategies.
Designed for those seeking a deeper understanding of company-level changes to meet green transition requirements, the microdegree is particularly suitable for professionals, including managers, responsible for shaping and implementing organizational strategy. Participation requires prior knowledge in the field of sustainability, experience in green topics, or successful completion of a pre-assessment (to be specified during consultation). Beginners are encouraged to explore the microdegree "Green Transition and Sustainable Economy," starting in August 2024, for a comprehensive introduction to green topics.
- Ethical decision-making in the business context
- Designing and managing circular business models
