As part of the master's programme in International Business, the International Business - Sustainable Finance from Maastricht University   combines finance with the principles of sustainability: environment, society and governance.

Following the 2008 financial crisis and on-going criticism of banks and corporations, there is great demand for finance professionals who can implement sustainability principles in a company while maintaining profitability. Bridging the gap between traditional capitalism and a new context of shared economic and social value, sustainable finance is quickly becoming a core part of the mission of financial institutions and companies.

Now that sustainability has become indispensable to financial institutions, corporations and regulators, there is an urgent need for experts in both finance and sustainability. As part of the new generation of finance practitioners, your career potential will be excellent. 

You’ll be qualified to work in all the same companies as finance graduates, but with a competitive edge thanks to your advanced knowledge of sustainability issues and implementation. SBE has an excellent network of financial institutions and organisations and can give you a leg up into a sustainable finance job.
