BI's sustainable strategy

Programmes and individual courses

We will develop the capabilities of students to be future generators of sustainable value for business and society at large and to work for an inclusive and sustainable global economy.

Integration of sustainability into all programs

In BI's strategy by 2025 we will include sustainability in all our programmes and individual courses to ensure awareness and understanding that industries who take this seriously will be the winners in the future's markets.

"Sustainability is not something only politicians and business executives should attend to. It is a natural part of the work we do and the choices we make as an educational institution. For our students, it relates to the ability to reflect on dilemmas as part of the learning process. It is about developing knowledge and skills that future leaders will need in order to bring business and society forward."
