The Copenhagen MBA recognises that future business leaders must understand the broader impact of decisions on the environment, society, and long-term corporate success. The curriculum is shaped to address sustainability challenges and opportunities, preparing participants to lead ethically and responsibly in the world post-MBA.
“The field is really moving into the mainstream, and it’s moving to the core of organisations. If you look at environmental and social problems, and also governance problems with regard to corporations, we see that these problems are actually always around us. And some of them are getting more severe over time,” says Andreas Rasche, Professor of Business in Society and Associate Dean of the Copenhagen MBA.
“Our commitment to sustainability is deeply rooted in the Nordic tradition of educating individuals who are passionate about business and compassionate towards our planet and society.”
The programme is the only full-time MBA offered in the Scandinavia and it is spread over an intensive year, designed to foster an informal learning atmosphere with small class sizes, ensuring a personalised and elevated educational experience.
Sustainability is integrated into every aspect of the curriculum through the core courses. On top of this, participants can choose to go a step deeper with the Governance & Sustainability Concentration where corporate governance, compliance management, circular economy, sustainable supply chains, and sustainable finance is explored. The topics are highly engaging as participants examine real-life cases, visit companies, and hear from experts who give testimonials of sustainability in action.
The full-time, one-year programme culminates with the Internship Project, allowing candidates to apply their MBA toolkit to real-world challenges within renowned companies like Ørsted, Danske Bank, Deloitte, Maersk, and Dissing+Weitling.
