Our curriculum, informed by industry insights and academic excellence, will enable our students to make a real difference both in society and for the environment.
Trinity Business School is launching the MSc Responsible Business & Sustainability because we firmly believe that business and society at large are in urgent need of graduates with the necessary skills and expertise to advance the sustainability transformation."
The MSc in Responsible Business and Sustainability programme
The programme will offer 8 core modules, covering subjects such as Sustainable Corporate Governance, ESG-Reporting and Climate Action, and a dissertation that allows students to work on current challenges of responsible and sustainable business either in the form of an individual research dissertation, or in small groups for a student consulting project with a company, civil society or public sector organisation.
Partnering with organisations within industry and academia, Trinity’s MSc in Responsible Business & Sustainability will afford students the chance to also learn from leading practitioners and academic experts. The programme has a balanced curriculum that covers the core dimensions of responsible business and sustainability, the choice of a research dissertation or collaborative project, and access to expertise within industry and academia beyond Trinity Business School.
