Why Sustainability Management School?
The aim of the SUMAS is to educate socially responsible global decision makers of the future who will make a real difference in the world. Its purpose is to deliver an innovative mix of sound business knowledge and a deep understanding of sustainable development.
A sustainable future is no longer an option or a choice, it has become a necessity. Coming generations of managers will have to re-think business practices to permit a sustainable impact on the environment, on economic development, and on society at large.
Studying in Switzerland provides a unique opportunity for learning Swiss values such as integrity, respect for the environment, and tolerance for diversity. SUMAS is a business school based totally on sustainability and it is the first of its kind.
The headquarters of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) in Gland, Switzerland, provides the perfect environment for this unique experience of studying at SUMAS.
