Environmental Systems Sciences/Business Administration at the University of Graz
On the degree programme, you will get a thorough education in conventional business administration (e.g. management or accounting) as well as systems sciences (considering problems from a system perspective) and the future-oriented field of sustainability management. The systems sciences component will enable you to see problems from a holistic viewpoint and find new ways of solving them.
Environmental Systems Sciences/Sustainability and Innovation Management (ESS/SIM)
The master’s programme in Environmental Systems Sciences/Sustainability and Innovation Management (ESS/SIM) builds directly on the bachelor’s programme, broadening and intensifying the knowledge and skills already acquired. At the University of Graz you also have the option of interdisciplinary master’s programmes and joint programmes, allowing further scope for individualised and specialised learning.
Preparation for a wide range of career paths
When you graduate, your combination of business administration expertise and the overarching environmental systems sciences framework will allow you to take traditional business-related jobs such as controlling, logistics and marketing as well as export, country, risk, production and HR management or accounting. Alternatively, you will have opportunities in environmental, sustainability and project management, in planning and developing environmentally friendly products and processes, in environmental protection institutions, in the energy industry, in working on environmental sustainability audits or in advising and supporting companies.
