MAJOR IN MANAGEMENT AND INNOVATION FOR SUSTAINABILITY AND IMPACT
Societal challenges, global crisis, shifting consumers preferences, political advocacy and technological breakthroughs are radically transforming markets and business models, casting the sustainability imperative at the center of the stage and giving rise to the so-called purpose-driven economy. Corporations, financial institutions and social ventures will have to redesign their missions and business models in order to pursue, jointly and intentionally, purpose and profit objectives, delivering positive impact on the environment and society. Against this background, a profound rethinking of management practices, governance models, strategies and operations is inevitable and urgent.
The Major Sustainability and Social Impact aims to get students acquainted with the societal challenges, the new economic paradigms and the technological breakthroughs that are giving rise to the purpose-driven economy.
