The Master of Business Administration in Sustainability program offered by the University of Haifa excels in its focus on environmental and social sustainability, two issues key to effective and responsible business practice. As such, the MBA’s combination of high academic standards in an international learning environment, its focus on essential tools for business management, and the acquiring of theoretical and practical tools for implementing sustainability, make it a very valuable and comprehensive business curriculum.
Over the course of the year students will cover a total of 20 core courses from the fields of Business Administration and Environmental Management and Sustainability. A further two elective courses from the field of Environmental Management and Sustainability, and an applied project make up the remainder of the curriculum. In addition to standard MBA subjects such as investments, economics, accounting and marketing among others, students will study subjects such as principles of sustainability, how to assess an impact of a project on surrounding environment, what environmental laws apply, what is a CSR and what management systems to use.
