A fundamental part of your learning at SUMAS is to apply the project management methodology and tools to real-case projects with partner companies and organizations, locally in Switzerland and Milan, or in countries around the world. See a selection of our student projects below.

Throughout your studies, you will be presented with a variety of sustainability business projects in collaboration with companies, start-ups or organizations.

If you are a business and are interested in working with dedicated international students and our faculty on a specific project, please send an enquiry to info@sumas.ch. Remuneration of SUMAS depends on the complexity of the project.
