"At BI, we continue our endeavors to include sustainability in our programme portfolio. Since the infancy in 2018, experience tells us that the issue needs to be intertwined with the academic development of disciplinary courses to obtain the necessary impact and influence. This comes in addition to singular courses in ethics, CSR and sustainability."
