Masters in Sustainable Management, Policy & Governance

Sustainability refers to the ability of a system to operate continuously, without using up resources, in a viable, need-fulfilling manner.

Sustainable Management, Policy and Governance is a discipline concerned with enforcing Management, Policy making and Governance in a sustainable way, for a sustainable human society, from all perspectives: environment, economy, industry, business, agriculture, etc.

Changing the Management, Policy making and Governance from wasteful to sustainable requires first of all changing the mind-set of the people active in these fields, that is why the best starting point is educating young people in this mind-set and towards this change. This discipline aims at educating professionals, which will later become involved in Management, Policy Making and Governance, to work in a sustainable manner by default. They will be a source of expertise and advisory services for the government, private sector, and non-governmental initiatives supporting the implementation of sustainable environment and development practices. The need for such experts is more and more stringent every day and a student of this field would have a wide array of professional opportunities in nowadays’ society.
