“SUMAS program has imparted deep and essential knowledge of sustainability which allows for me to broaden the possibilities for myself.”Hiroshi YonetaniOnline MBA in Sustainability Management 2015
“The MBA in Sustainability Management has the crucial edge of embedding sustainability throughout business theory and practice – at management, operational and systemic levels. It inspired a future-orientated vision that can still be applied in practice, today. It has taught me that sustainability is only the beginning of the future we all want – as we have expanding our understanding of the concept of sustainability, so are we encouraged to grow and instill future visions.”Francini van StadenOnline MBA in Sustainability Management 2014
