The SUSM program is a great interdisciplinary platform to launch oneself into the world of business, policy-making and advanced higher research.
The staff were consistently supportive and always approachable. The program is diverse with an international lens, which helped to expand my horizons both in and out of the classroom.
Working hand-in-hand with your thesis advisor students of this program will begin the long journey of developing a masterful understanding of a specific sustainable issue and what innovative solutions there are to address them.
Ultimately, the foundations developed through the Sustainability Management program helped me in further pursuing graduate studies through a PhD.
