The Master aims to train professionals capable of managing sustainability, with particular focus on Carbon Footprints, both at a strategic level and at the practical level of calculating, governing and monitoring causes and applying mitigation measures.
The course has a vocational feel to it, starting with a fundamental, in-depth look into sustainability management in all its dimensions, including governance and environmental aspects.
The Master then concludes with a study of Carbon Footprint management techniques for businesses, looking at how to include carbon management within business strategy and in the context of systems already in operation, from the planning and monitoring system and the reporting system to the system of incentives.
The professional training aims to create both Carbon Managers, professionals with the necessary skills to manage greenhouse gas emissions, take decisions and employ mitigation measures, and Sustainability (or CSR) Managers, professionals dedicated to managing socio-environmental and sustainability issues connected to the operations of companies.
The Master’s course is aimed both at those who already work within companies (private or public) and want to increase their skills with the innovative content and tools provided by the course, and at those who want to develop specialist skills in sustainability and carbon management at a business level.
The environment is an issue that is attracting increasing amounts of attention, including within businesses and public bodies. For this reason, the labour market requires people who can respond to this interest, with suitable training and specialist technical skills.
The course is aimed at new, emerging professional roles.
The teaching methods on the Master have been designed to provide students with skills concerning:
- The notion of sustainability and the evolution of the concept
- Sustainability and Carbon Footprint at a macroeconomic level – an outline
- Companies and sustainability and Carbon Footprint strategies
- Sustainability and Carbon Footprints in business processes and in the uman resources management
- Elements of law and sustainability
