Sustainable Business The English-language Diploma in Sustainable Business offers a broad knowledge base on global sustainability.

The Diploma in Sustainable Business is offered jointly by the University of St.Gallen’s Institute for Economy and the Environment (IWÖ-HSG), Business School Lausanne (BSL), and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD). It is an innovative one-year sustainable business training programme for engaged change agents who aim to develop future sustainability agendas in business and society. The programme looks at global challenges and the strategic and operational implications for business. Through its experiential learning approach it combines subject competence with the development of leading change skills and personal development. The diploma regularly attracts participants from 10 – 15 nations and collaborates through real-life consulting projects with small national and big multinational organizations like Unilever, Nestlé, Coca-Cola, Bosch-Siemens Hausgeräte, Die Post or Hewlett Packard.
