Bachelor’s Programme in Business, Ethics and Sustainability
Stockholm Business School’s undergraduate programme in Business, Ethics, and Sustainability offers a unique insight into the role of business in sustainable development.
Sustainable development is on top of the agenda of business, civil society, and governments. The Bachelor’s programme in Business, Ethics and Sustainability combines Business Studies with Practical Philosophy and Sustainability Science.
Thus, the crucial aspects of sustainable development will be covered within a unique programme that will prepare students for a career in business, public-sector organisations, and non-governmental organisations.
Combining business studies with practical philosophy (including ethics) and sustainability science, the programme provides students with a comprehensive view on the different aspects of sustainable development, leading up to a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration.
The programme is a cooperation between Stockholm Business School, the Philosophy Department of Stockholm University, and Stockholm Resilience Centre.
In the first year, students will gain a broad overview over the main disciplines of business administration – Management, Finance, Accounting, and Marketing.
The second year is divided between Stockholm Resilience Centre and the Philosophy Department of Stockholm University. In this year the students will first explore the foundations of sustainability science, with a focus on the relationships between society, the natural environment, and the economy.
Next, students will explore the normative principles that govern people living in society and in a shared environment, and develop adaptive, transferrable analytical skills that can be used to explore original, independent solutions to the problems facing society.
In the final year, students can either go abroad through one of our many exchange agreements or choose courses offered at Stockholm University. In the final semester, students will write a bachelor’s thesis in Business Administration.
