Advancing leaders for tomorrow's business, today
Growing mindsets and capabilities to help unleash leaders for a more environmentally sustainable future, is at the centre of our work.
The Centre for Sustainability and Business is developing new knowledge and programs to help leaders integrate sustainability into their strategy and operations, and realise transformative change. In doing so, we benefit from the multidisciplinary research and teaching expertise of our school’s faculty and staff.
Our educational offerings combine evidence-based best practice with the practical experience of our industry partners. The result is a well-rounded learning experience that empowers leaders to grow sustainability mindsets and across to benefit their organisations and careers, and make a difference in the world.
Embedded in our Degrees
We're incorporating sustainability into our curricula to make sure our graduates are sustainability literate.
The School’s purpose is to unlock ideas and leaders for a sustainable future, incorporating economic, social and environmental aspects of sustainability.
The Centre is instrumental in fulfilling that purpose through its commitment to ensuring our students have an understanding of environmental sustainability as a strategic imperative and the knowledge to apply it across all functions of business.
Sustainability for Strategic Advantage Program
Leaders who fail to incorporate sustainability into their strategic decision making forgo revenue, incur unnecessary costs, expose their firms to avoidable risks and fall short on their purpose.
On the other hand, leaders that approach sustainability as a strategic issue enable their firm to maintain superior performance over the long term.
Join us at Melbourne Business School for this unique one-day program, including a guest speaker dinner session, focused on why it matters (starting with the science around the cause and impacts of climate change and other sustainability challenges), why it matters to you (related business risks and opportunities), and what to do about it (implications for strategic decision-making and change).Learn More
