SUSTAIN is a collaboration project between School of Business at Mzumbe University (Tanzania) and  the Business and Economics College at Jimma University (Ethiopia), and among others supported by BI and Diku.  SUSTAIN aims to contribute to the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), which are also part of BI's own strategy. International understanding, intercultural competence, network development and exchange of academics and graduate students in the three countries are essential elements of SUSTAIN. In particular, we focus on new business development and issues related to supply chains, environmental concerns, renewable energy, transport, digitisation, health and anti-corruption.
