The master's program "Sustainable Management" can be completed after four semesters. Special emphasis is placed on an interdisciplinary education: 

Students choose between a major in economics or business administration and supplement this with a minor from the fields of politics, urban and landscape planning, agriculture and food management, environmental and energy technology or human-environment systems. It is explicitly desired that students have different backgrounds and thus enrich the interdisciplinary education.

The program consists of the following compulsory modules

  • Environmental Economics
  • Intermediate Microeconomics
  • Supply Chain Management
  • International and European Environmental Law
  • Ecology and Material Flows
