Blekinge Institute of Technology (BTH), Sweden, is a top ranked sustainability research and education institution currently recruiting early – mid career professionals for their cutting-edge Masters courses.
The Masters in Strategic Leadership towards Sustainability (MSLS) and the Masters in Sustainable Product Service System Innovation (MSPI) are underpinned by the science-based Framework for Strategic Sustainable Development (widely known as The Natural Step Framework) spearheaded by Karl-Henrik Robèrt, a global sustainability leader and course tutor.
The Swedish state kindly pays for tuition fees for these Master’s programmes for EU and EEA citizens and courses are taught in English. BTH is located in the beautiful coastal city of Karlskrona, a UNESCO world heritage site on the southeast coast of Sweden.
MSLS explores the baseline science of systematic sustainability coupled with the skills required for organizational change. The course produces graduates who can deliver organizational leadership for strategic change towards sustainability. MSPI enables students to design and innovate for positive socio-ecological impacts of products, services, and product-service systems throughout their life cycles. This course produces graduates who can deliver outcomes that meet user needs while generating competitive advantages in the expanding sustainability-driven market.
Applications open on the 1st of December 2010 and close 17th January 2011. For more information please visit www.bth.se/sustainability
