Mother Nature is a gift for us to keep. Land, water, air, animals, plants, and everything on earth is a precious thing to preserve. However, we can no longer take the beauty and fruitfulness of the planet for granted. In fact, our planet is in crisis.
The Program is a full-time 2 years MBA (120 ECTS) but taught intensively over 18 months. The selected multidisciplinary approach makes this master program unique. The courses are taught jointly by professors from UGM and UiA, and practitioners from private businesses and public offices are invited as guest lecturers in most courses. Faculty members from participating AUN universities will also be invited as guest lectures, based on their scientific qualifications and regional competencies from various parts of ASEAN.
Combining competence from business school disciplines, such as Finance, Marketing, Strategy and Business Ethics, with knowledge and experiences from environmental sciences, like Forestry, Agronomy and Engineering, shall bring students towards a deep understanding of environmental problems and solutions. A practical case study approach throughout the courses will educate and train the students in economic-ecological system analyses. Throughout the study program, students will learn about the necessity of multi-stakeholder engagement and corporate and public social responsibility.
The program offers two Concentration Tracks in Sustainability. Track 1 comprises courses on Energy Resource Management, Urban Planning and Management, and Climate Change Laws and Greenhouse Gas Reductions. Track 2 consists of courses on Food Security and Sustainable Agriculture, Marine Resources and Coastal Management, and Forest and Conservation Management.
Track 1 :
- Energy Resources Management :
This course offers an overview of energy resource and the management of energy production and supply. The course also offers analyses of potential strategies for improved access to electricity in under-served regions, particularly by community empowerment for local production. The course connects to Financial Management in discussing funding options for renewable energy initiatives.

We also present and discuss case studies of governance and conflicts in the use of marine and coastal resources in ASEAN
