The Challenge

Global society's current path is unsustainable. At the same time, exciting possibilities for new ways forward are emerging—ways that bring human activity into harmony with the greater social and ecological systems that support us, while building better lives for all. How do we change course to create this better future?

The Solution

We become the leaders and change agents the world needs. We learn to understand our complex world better and to collaborate more strategically and systemically across borders, sectors, and disciplines. We transform the ways we think, plan, make, act, and lead in order to ‘co-create’ a vibrant, sustainable future.

Our invitation for you

Join us in a stimulating, multicultural and multidisciplinary setting to earn your Master's in Strategic Leadership towards Sustainability (MSLS) at  Blekinge Institute of Technology . Strengthen and develop your personal and professional leadership capacities to navigate the complex sustainability challenge:

  • Learn about science- and experience-based methodologies for leading the transition towards sustainability.
  • Together with a highly diverse group of peers, practise your skills at effectively combining and using these collaborative, solutions-focused methodologies.
  • Be welcomed into a supportive, global community of strategic leaders and change agents working across a broad variety of sectors.

Programme Structure

The MSLS curriculum revolves around two integrated core themes

  • Strategic Sustainable Development (SSD)

Over the course of 10 months, students move through a spiral learning process focused on developing both theoretical understanding and practical experience of using SSD and LiC methodologies to enable and engage individuals, organizations, and institutions to take tangible steps towards sustainability.
