Purpose & Social Impact

*With the Liquid Learning methodology, participants can choose to join the class either face-to-face, or remotely/online.

The Sustainability: Your competitive advantage program allows participants to create new opportunities for their businesses through environmental, social and governance (ESG) frameworks. They will study specific cases that demonstrate how companies can do well by doing good; learn and apply the frameworks to their own organizations and measure the impact; and explore the new type of leadership and governance required to drive these changes.

The program is furthermore a hands-on learning experience where participants will engage with other business leaders, top faculty, and renowned panelists in applied debate and workshops.

"Attending the program has been one of my best inspirational and educational experiences so far. The topic of the course was as relevant as it could be, given the enormous challenge we all face as regards the climate change.

The content was outstanding, with a great mix of sessions with speakers from both academia and industry. The pace and intensity were demanding, so I felt my time away from work was efficiently invested.

All the organisational elements were superb, with hospitality of the IE Business School team deserving particular appreciation.

I recommend the program to all senior executives who either want to expand their knowledge and understanding of the ESG topics, or who still need to be convinced about the unprecedented importance and urgency of focusing upon all the measures that can help saving the planet and making the world a better place."
