Why Sustainability Management School?

The aim of the SUMAS is to educate socially responsible global decision makers of the future who will make a real difference in the world. Its purpose is to deliver an innovative mix of sound business knowledge and a deep understanding of sustainable development.

Why Sustainability?

A sustainable future is no longer an option or a choice, it has become a necessity. Coming generations of managers will have to re-think business practices to permit a sustainable impact on the environment, on economic development, and on society at large.
