New continuing education courses for sustainability management

2022-11-04 Lüneburg. The digital and sustainability skills of employees represent an important competitive and employment factor for companies. The Professional School at Leuphana University Lüneburg has developed new continuing education courses as part of the DEGREE project, which focus on the acquisition of such skills. The spectrum of topics ranges from supply chains and circular economy to climate protection and accounting. The first two new certificate programmes can be studied from the summer semester 2023 onwards.

The continuing education equips participants with a wide range of methods and tools needed for the sustainable development of a company. Within half a year, they acquire action-oriented expertise in a selected area of corporate sustainability management. The study programme is designed to be part-time and can be completed flexibly online. This enables direct transfer of the specialised knowledge into everyday working life.

The Professional School's new offer benefits from the many years of expertise of Leuphana's Centre for Sustainability Management. The Centre has been working on the topic of corporate sustainability for 20 years. Close links with research and a continuous exchange with corporate practice ensure that the study programmes are geared to the specific needs of small and medium-sized enterprises.

The continuing education programmes in the future field of "Green Economy" were developed as part of the "DEGREE" project. The aim of this project is to create digitally studyable educational programmes so that students can acquire new skills, especially while working. The project is being funded by the European Social Fund and the state of Lower Saxony until the end of the year.
