With the immediate issues caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, many organisations have been in permanent crisis mode since the early part of 2020, and there seems to be little respite to take a breath and think about strategy, or indeed, anything else.  Organisations large and small, public and private sector are focussing on resilience as never before.

However, consumer demand and behaviour is evolving rapidly, and organisations are facing greater scrutiny of their products and services – sustainability is often high on the list.  A recent UN report highlighted the financial opportunities in pursuing a sustainable approach to business strategy and management amount to US$12 Trillion a year by 2030, with first movers having a 5-15 year advantage and opportunities in over 60 sectors, from green energy to construction, to health, food and agriculture.

Sustainability is rapidly becoming a watchword for business success, and innovators and early adopters are likely to become sector leaders.

In response, Plymouth Marjon University has developed a brand new Master’s in Management for a Sustainable Future.  An innovative alternative to a traditional MBA, this course is fully accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) and examines traditional management subject areas such as finance and strategy through a modern lens.

This is a flexible part-time distance learning course, designed to fit around into the busy diaries of working professionals.  High quality e-learning materials developed and delivered by academics and experts from industry are complemented by a personal tutor on call, and there are opportunities to network online with fellow students.  Topic areas include: Sustainable Finance and Strategy, the Circular Economy, Enabling Leadership, and Creating and Sustaining Value.  Part-bursaries may be available.
