This online master’s program concentrates on the intersection between business and sustainability. Combine the skills gained through our business management foundation course with the in-depth knowledge expanded upon via our sustainable management specialization to establish your organization’s transition to becoming more economically, societally, and environmentally sustainable.


Across the globe, sustainability has become increasingly important. As a result of this, industries and organizations around the world are now expected to realize and manage the impact they have not just on the economy and society, but also on the environment.

The Steinbeis master’s with a focus on Sustainable Management concentrates on the intersection of business and sustainability and provides you with vital information that helps to ensure the long-term viability of your business.


Through a combination of the strong basic knowledge learned from the mandatory business management foundation module and the in-depth understanding of various sustainability issues – including legal regulations in the field of sustainability – gained from your specialization, this course will help you develop strategic and operational concepts to promote sustainability in your business or will encourage you to maybe even start your own sustainable company.


Expand your knowledge in the sustainability field across organizations, industries, and practices, enhance your capabilities in business, consulting, and ESG (environmental, social, and governance) and establish your transition to sustainable business.
