Taught in: English
Sustainable Development & Social Responsibility specialisation
This specialisation combines two competences for those wishing to work in in sustainable development but who do not necessarily have a purely scientific profile.
This course is in line with a new need on the part of companies: today firms have to integrate environmental considerations into their development and investment strategies.
Depending on students’ profiles, they emphasise the scientific or managerial aspects in their course of study. The aim is to train responsible managers who master the tools of sustainable development and who also have a thorough understanding of environmental issues.
All areas and levels of the economy are impacted by environmental and societal responsibility.
Combining science and business
This major focuses on both science and business, that is on our society's impact on the environment and the management choices available to reduce this impact.
Courses address sustainability and the managerial, legal, and ethical aspects of the environment policies. This is the perfect major for students who wish to work in the field of sustainable development for a better tomorrow.
In an age in which environmental and social issues are top priority for many people, companies have to have a strong corporate social responsibility strategy. One primary focus of corporate social responsibility is the environment. Thus all businesses have to adopt sustainable business practices.
The Environmental Management Business track reflects the growing need to protect the environment and gives students the training and skills necessary to accomplish that challenging goal.
Environmental management jobs:
- Executive director
- Principal consultant
- Sustainability consultant
- Product integrity manager
- Corporate responsibility manager
Fourth-year students of this specialisation may carry out their fourth year of joint studies with the first year of the Master GEDD of the University of Côte d' Azur in alternating studies.
