Our ambition: to train professionals capable of rethinking the role of business in society
Today, business is under increasing scrutiny with regard to its social responsibilities. By contributing to economic growth, companies play a significant social and political role in addition to their economic one, with an impact at the local, national and transnational levels. They are now expected to reconcile the interests of their shareholders with those of many other stakeholders, while addressing issues of the common good.
At the same time, the digital revolution has given rise to new business models. A new economy is emerging with an increasing focus on the needs and practices of citizens and consumers.
In this new business ecosystem, innovation, creativity and entrepreneurship are crucial. In this context, the School's mission is to train business professionals who are able to use their creativity and entrepreneurial vision to transform companies and rethink the role of business in society, with a view to the common good
Programmes catering to diverse backgrounds and needs
The School offers standard two-year Master's programmes, dual Master’s programmes and one-year Master’s programmes designed for young professionals. Students will eventually be able to take the whole curriculum in English.
