Master Class - Co-creating change
Sustainable solutions to real-life challenges
Master Class equips its participants with problem-solving skills and confidence in their own abilities and potential. We believe academic background combined with a hands-on change-maker attitude is the key to solving the wicked problems our planet is facing. The cooperation with science, students and business creates new thinking and new opportunities. The Sustainability Master Class program focuses on sustainability and CSR issues in global, natural resource-intensive businesses. The program is organized in collaboration with Outotec, one of the global leaders in minerals and metals processing technology as well as sustainability. The very first Sustainability Master Class started in November 2016 and the final solutions will be presented in April 2017. The new program will start in January 2018.
