Why

At AMS, we believe that setting up new businesses only for economic growth and profit is a model of the past and contributes to the problems of tomorrow. We want to educate future managers with a global mindset and societal consciousness. Sustainability is at the core of our mission.

Our program is unique in its kind: we want to teach you how to put ideas into sustainable business concepts, how to create impact that matters for society, either by starting your own business or by learning the tools to innovate within a company.

Join the sustainable revolution, join the MSIE!

Why this master's program?

Our world is under severe pressure. Not only ecologically, but economically and socially as well. Companies also feel this impact: they are not only victims of these developments, but their profit model is often the cause. Therefore, it is extra important that tomorrow's business leaders and entrepreneurs take the future into their own hands. To ensure thriving long-term organizations in a world we can be proud of, we must transform the current state of affairs into sustainable strategies that respect the planet and its people.
