About SUMAS

Sustainability Management School (SUMAS) was the first business school in the world to launch the BBA and MBA in Sustainability Management in February 2012. SUMAS is a unique business school located between Geneva and Lausanne, Switzerland-that offers innovative business programs integrated with state of the art sustainability knowledge. SUMAS combines high level academic education with real life projects in partnership with top companies.

 

SUMAS trains the managers of the future by teaching both business-related subjects and sustainability topics at the same time. BBA and MBA in Sustainability Management programs at SUMAS include such unique modules as: “Sustainable Finance and Responsible Investment” instead of “Finance ”, “Green Corporate Strategy and Policy” instead of “Corporate Strategy”, “International Business Law and Environmental Policy” instead of “International Business Law”, and “International Business and Biodiversity” instead of “International Business”. Graduates with BBA or MBA degrees in Sustainability Management have definite advantage over just BBA or MBA graduates.

 

“SUMAS is filling an important gap that exists today in business schools. There is a divide between business management education and scientific knowledge for sustainable development. We need leaders who are able to integrate economic growth with sustainable development. This starts from their education. The traditional approach is not enough. The leaders of the future have to find creative solutions to complex issues.” - Ivana Modena, President & Academic Director
