The programme in Business - Sustainable Finance at BI Norwegian Business School will focus on the core economic theories that address sustainability and ESG issues, their macroeconomic aspects, and corporate dimensions.

By using and applying systematic and quantitative tools and methods within finance, you will be equipped to analyse and assess the impact, risks and benefits, of ESG and sustainability in the context of corporate decisions and development. The programme will also address ethical issues that may arise when trying to balance interests of investors, employees, other stakeholders, and society.
