Shape the future of businesses with cutting-edge expertise in innovative biotechnologies


Increasing social interest in sustainability-oriented business, changes in consumer behavior toward renewable and regenerative products, and political agreements and regulations with stricter environmental and climate targets have created a market where companies are now, more than ever, in demand to master the technological change toward climate-neutral and sustainable resource and technology management.



This structural change requires specialists with a business education based on sustainable concepts as well as knowledge in: energy and process technology, biotechnology, and material sciences in order to be able to redesign internal company production processes towards resource-saving and sustainable supply chains. This also includes approaches to circular economy. The aim is to develop holistic approaches for the comprehensive use of renewable raw materials and waste and to be able to evaluate and optimize these in terms of their benefits. In addition, a global perspective is necessary, since companies are in international competition and should be enabled to contribute to the achievement of global sustainability goals.



The interdisciplinary master’s program in Sustainable Management and Technology bridges the gap between business and technical areas of enterprise. Additionally, it trains the leaders of tomorrow’s sustainable economy to understand and shape entrepreneurial developments and their impact on society and the economy in the necessary depth and complexity.
