MASTER IN SUSTAINABILITY TRANSITION MANAGEMENT

The Program

The Master in Sustainability Transition Management has the aim to equip participants with tools and knowledge to develop a professional career internationally in the global sustainability arena.

The Program is rooted in the Sustainability Transition framework, which identifies five main transition pathways in industry, energy, urban systems, agriculture and mobility. The programs will focus on all these five pillars, thus providing participants with a systemic view of how sustainability can be translated into tangible economic, environmental and social outcomes. 

The master is a hybrid program, 80% online, and 20% in presence. The online teaching sessions take place two evenings a week (Tuesday and Thursday 6 p.m. – 9 p.m.) and on Saturday (10 a.m. – 1 p.m.). Each session lasts about 3 hours.  The residential classes will take place one week on campus in April 2025 at Bologna Business School and one week in October 2025 at the University of Galway. During the residential classes, the participants will attend laboratories, Company visits, and events in collaboration with the business network.

Italy represents the right place to improve your skills on sustainability transition and develop a new mindset ready for the “new normal”.

This is accomplished by organizing a series of workshops, with the aim of providing the fundamental tools and resources to be appropriately prepared for the labor market.
In addition,thanks to the collaboration with professional career counselors, students receive a customized service, in order to understand their strengths and to build a professional development plan, which will turn out to be helpful when looking for an internship.
Here follow some of the activities:
- Initial guidance interviews
- Specific interviews, focused on one’s own career plan
- Continuous support to students with one – to – one sessions

Master in Sustainability Transition Management (A.Y.2020/2021)

“The Master in Sustainability Transition Management not only broadened my horizons by bringing me in contact with professors, guest speakers and fellow sustainability believers (in our class we love to call ourselves climate hooligans) that are committed to the sustainability vision, but also gave me the opportunity to shift my career by combining two things that I love & I am passionate for: sustainability & fashion. This master was by far the best choice I have made these last years.”
