Sustainability strategy

Sustainability in programmes

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 programmes

Offering education that integrates responsibility, ethics and sustainability is one of BI’s most impactful ways to address societal challenges. Since the last PRME report (in 2018), BI has both developed new and revised existing courses and programmes at the BSc, MSc and Executive level.

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.

"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."
