CUHK Business School Launches MSc in Sustainable Global Business

The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) Business School is now accepting applications for its new Master of Science in Sustainable Global Business (MScSGB) degree programme, scheduled to commence in the fall of 2024. The programme aims to nurture perceptive, dynamic, and forward-looking leaders who are driven to shape the future sustainability agenda.

Sustainability has evolved from an ecological concept to a critical boardroom agenda. The growing complexity and urgency of sustainability issues pose significant threats to humanity, placing greater pressure on businesses to take responsible actions. Companies are now not only evaluated based on their ESG performance but are also expected to make tangible contributions to a sustainable, shared future.

This master’s programme offers both one-year full-time and two-year part-time modes. It is designed to provide comprehensive training to recent graduates, early-career professionals and working professionals who aspire to lead in the evolving landscape of sustainability. It equips them with the necessary knowledge and skills to strategically manage and address complex sustainability challenges, as well as drive positive impact in organisations and beyond.

A key feature of the programme is its interdisciplinary curriculum and flexible course selection. Students have the opportunity to choose from a wide range of elective courses, including ESG management, finance, supply chain, psychology and biotechnology. They can customise their course load balancing managerial and technical courses based on individual needs and interests. To strengthen their multi-domain thinking and expand their professional network, the programme allows the students to also enrol in one course offered by other Master’s programmes in CUHK Business School or the Department of Geography and Resource Management. Furthermore, students will gain in-depth insights into the ESG and sustainability practices of leading industries, both locally and globally, enabling them to become versatile problem solvers with international perspectives.

Professor Haibin Yang, Director of MSc in Sustainable Global Business and Professor in the Department of Management at CUHK Business School, expressed, “Leveraging our strengths in interdisciplinary training, alumni network, and industry connections, we aim to nurture a new generation of high-calibre professionals who possess a holistic understanding of sustainability and are capable of leading businesses in transformative endeavours within the increasingly intricate interplay of business, environment and society.”

CUHK Business School provides career guidance through industry experts and offers a wide variety of scholarships for students who demonstrate exceptional academic accomplishments and professional qualifications. All applicants with submitted full applications will be automatically considered for scholarships; no separate application is required.
