The dual degree Entrepreneurship and Sustainable Design from The Sustainable Design School and Skema Business School is designed to meet the needs of entrepreneurs, in any field, via a unique hybrid approach, that will allow to make a positive impact on our world by obtaining business related skills together with the capacity to drive change through sustainable innovation.


The UN expects the world population to reach ten billion by 2050, with two thirds of people living in cities. At the same time, natural resources are becoming scarcer. 

Access to food, land, clean water, and reliable energy will become increasingly challenging. While this creates material tensions, such a situation also presents significant opportunities to create innovative sustainable industries. 

Creating radically new businesses and jobs that make profit with purpose whilst addressing economic, environmental and societal challenges requires two key skills: creativity and business acumen. Developing these two skills is the role of the Entrepreneurship and Sustainable Design double degree programme offered by The Sustainable Design School with SKEMA.

Students will acquire skills

Master contextual research and collaboration in the field of sustainability

  • Integrate eco-stewardship methodologies with professional scenarios
  • Apply sustainable principles and methods to design innovative solutions that meet the needs of the present while maximizing the positive impact on the future
  • Master the commercial mindset required to transform ideas into new viable businesses
  • Analyse a new venture idea from multiples perspectives
  • Increase your chances of success by mastering business models and business plans

Career Opportunities

There are many examples of successful entrepreneurial companies built using design to create a competitive advantage (e.g. Airbnb or Apple). McKinsey recently reported that large, traditional corporates which are design-focussed companies outperform their peers both in terms of revenue growth and in total return to shareholders.

Graduates of this MSc will find opportunities to pursue careers as:

  • Entrepreneurs in sustainable industries
  • Intrapreneurs for large corporates which emphasise corporate social responsibility
  • Incubator advisors
  • Business developers in positive impact start-ups


The M.Sc. Entrepreneurship & Sustainable Design is recognised by the CGE (Conférence des Grandes Ecoles) and has the French visa from the ministry of education.
