Executive Education in Sustainable Business The "Diploma in Advanced Sustainability" is an innovative executive education program designed for engaged future leaders in business and beyond. New challenges The world is at a turning point. “Earth Overshoot Day” marks the day all resources which can be regenerated globally throughout each year are exhausted. In 2018 this day was August 1st. From this time on, humankind is living off the planet´s capital instead of the its interest. Endless growth in a world of finite resources is impossible in the long run and we are in dire demand for new solutions in the decades ahead. Business is considered to be part of the problem, yet business leaders often do not know how to embrace and actively manage change towards sustainability. New challenges require new competencies. New competences arise from assuming new perspectives and envisioning new solutions. New challenges also require new leadership skills. Subject expertise needs to be complemented with the ability to drive change and implement new solutions across organizational boundaries. The program is offered by the Institute for Economy and the Environment at the University of St.Gallen (IWÖ-HSG) in close collaboration with Mission Possible Foundation and endorsed by the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD. Thomas Dyllick and Katrin Muff from Mission Possible Foundation are thought leaders in the space of business sustainability and responsibility. Furthermore, they are experts in developing powerful educational spaces for educating change agents, who are able to create and transform organizations to become a force for good. Renowned faculty from the University of St. Gallen, along with recognized experts in interdisciplinary learning and training as well as thought-leaders from academia, government, nongovernmental organizations and business provide a unique setting for participants to acquire the new skills and competences required to lead the sustainability agenda in business and beyond.
