Summer Schools

The International Summer School is a one week course on the latest sustainable management and CSR topics. Considering the evolving international economic environment as well as global, societal, and ecological challenges, the summer school’s curriculum draws upon the complex paradigm of sustainable management and related implications for both, businesses practitioners and scientists.

A major objective of the course is to share experiences and insights from various geographical, and cultural environments regarding different approaches to sustainable management in order to foster mutual learning, identify synergies and develop collective approaches.

Guest lectures from different continents provide input and foster discussions on how regional perspectives on sustainable management and CSR differ from each other. Moreover, participants will develop a joint project summarizing key findings of the Summer School.

The Summer School reaches out to PhD, Master Students, as well as young professionals that have a genuine interest in sustainable management and CSR and related cross-cutting issues and challenges. The course will be offered in English.
