The aim of our Sustainability Management BSc programme is to prepare sustainability specialists, managers and experts, successfully implement solutions that help to achieve business and social development goals without depletion of natural resources. You will gain the most up-to-date knowledge and practical skills within the courses related to the environment (including climate change and its consequences, natural hazards, water management problems, waste management, responsible management of environmental resources, protection of natural ecosystems and biodiversity); socio-economic issues (focused on specific models of economic development and social life, the impact of environmental changes on social interactions); management (management and leadership as mechanisms of planning and implementation of tasks).
The programme is in line with the Sustainable Development Goals adopted by the United Nations. It delivers a curriculum balanced between environmental strategies and socio-economic development and is consistent with the state-of-the-art and the priorities of the European Union policy (Green Deal, Circular Bioeconomy, Digital Transformation, Jobs & Growth, Social Protection & Health). In particular, the programme focuses on such issues as biodiversity, climate change, smart agriculture and food production, sustainable tourism and urban development.
Our graduates will be ready to forecast and identify the most pressing problems of the contemporary world, analyse them, and evaluate ecological and human risks. They will also be able to design solutions to various crisis situations in the human environment-related, among others, to climate change, natural disasters, water resource deficits, ecosystem transformation, biodiversity reduction, energy security, etc. The graduates will be prepared to work in all types of organizations, companies and institutions that aim to build more environmentally friendly practices at the local, state and global levels.
