Society at large is increasingly facing existential challenges such as the global climate crisis, a general scarcity of resources and severe biodiversity loss. Consequently, successfully managing sustainability, i.e., the company’s impact on people and planet, is not only becoming a core responsibility of firms but also a key success factor, enabling companies to gain competitive advantages.
Various stakeholders including employees, customers, investors, governments and non-governmental organizations are calling for companies to take a proactive role in sustainable development and be a part of the solution rather than merely contributing to the problem.
Become part of the next cohort and learn the knowledge and methods needed to make an impact in your company in our part-time program.
In order to meet these diverse expectations and challenges, it is essential to understand stakeholder concerns and effectively balance the goals of profitability and sustainability. Moral standards as well as current and upcoming legal regulations are making environmental and social sustainability indispensable cornerstones of future corporate management.
Impact managers who anticipate, understand and proactively create cross-functional solutions to these dynamic market developments will create substantial value for their companies and society at large. Consequently, knowledge and the skill set required to sustainably manage the company’s impacts, both of which lie at the heart of the Mannheim Master in Sustainability and Impact Management, will be critical components of the core competences of future talent.
MBS staff and high-profile experts, among them Academic Director Prof. Dr. Laura Marie Edinger-Schons, give you a brief overview about the Mannheim Master in Sustainability and Impact Management program in this trailer.
