Students who pursue this degree may expect to study topics such as how to incorporate sustainability into business decision-making, how to replace traditional products with products that may be more environmentally friendly and how to support environmental principles and human rights while making profitable business decisions.

A MSc in Sustainable Business may give students the opportunity to learn stronger critical thinking skills, to improve communication and to better analyze the environmental impacts of business decisions. While all these skills can translate to better business practices, they may also pay off in other areas of life.
