The first MBA Decarbonization in the world!
Why MBA Decarbonization?
MBA Decarbonization is the world’s first study program addressing new provisions of the so-called The “European Green Deal” to help transform the EU into a modern, resource-efficient and competitive economy:
• which will reach zero net greenhouse gas emissions in 2050
• where there will be a decoupling of economic growth from resource consumption
• where no person or region is left behind.
The European Commission has adopted a package of legislative proposals to adapt the EU’s climate, energy, transport and tax policies to meet the goal of reducing net greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 by at least 55% compared to 1990 levels.
This fundamental change of the environment creates both a strategic and operational challenge for all organizations, therefore proper preparation is crucial. The simultaneous, efficient and effective implementation of the transformation towards decarbonization is an excellent opportunity to gain a sustainable competitive advantage on the market.
The pioneering MBA curriculum Decarbonization addresses both managerial and technical aspects related to decarbonization. Graduates of the studies will acquire theoretical knowledge and develop practical competences in implementing solutions in the field of decarbonization in their enterprises. They will learn, among others, methods of calculating the level of CO2 emissions, energy technologies, construction of an R&D project, ESG activities, modern business models, EU regulations, waste management or the possibility of financing decarbonization activities. They will also understand how to successfully conduct complex transformation projects in all areas of operation.
The complexity of the study program allows you to dedicate them to people who manage any processes or a group of processes in the organization: Finance, HR, IT, Logistics, Accounting, Sales, Production, Distribution, Customer Service, Audit, Document Management, Reporting and those responsible for conducting and coordinating projects of organizational changes and transformations.
