Creative Sustainability

cs classroom

Universities are key actors in preparing students to address the sustainability challenges of the future. We tackle the complexity of socio-scientific issues with a multidisciplinary teaching approach of the joint international master’s programme of Creative Sustainability that brings together students from School of Business, School of Arts, Design & Architecture, as well as School of Engineering.

Creative Sustainability course offering at Aalto School of Business includes:

Sustainability in Business (6 ECTS)
How to Change the World: Innovating Toward Sustainability (6 ECTS)
Dialogues on Corporate Responsibility in a Global Economy (6 ECTS)
Capstone in Creative Sustainability / project work (6 ECTS)
Sustainable Entrepreneurship (6 ECTS)
Accounting for Sustainability (6 ECTS)

We believe that developing thinking for sustainability requires stimulating peer environment, interactive teaching methods and possibilities for hands-on experience of solving wicked sustainability problems. Through their study projects and master thesis work our students have the opportunity to work together with established companies, start-ups, NGOs and regulators. They get to design sustainable business models and get involved in community problems that require multidisciplinary solutions.

School of Business students have the possibility to select Sustainability Management-track for their business master’s degree, while minor studies in Creative Sustainability are available to all the master level students of Aalto University.
