The Center of Competence for Sustainable Finance is part of shaping the next generation of finance professionals, investors, and scholars through a broad range of graduate and post-graduate education programs.
The CCSF supported in the design and development of a Minor in Sustainable Finance for master's students, which will be launched in the fall semester 2021. The program will provide students with a unique interdisciplinary foundation, finance-related methods, and quantitative skills that are needed in order to bring innovative knowledge to companies, investors, and policymakers.
The program thus addresses the needs of future professionals and researchers in banking and finance, enabling them to act as thought leaders integrating sustainability into the financial markets.
CCSF also hosts the Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS) in Sustainable Finance that gives professionals the theoretical and practical tools to advance sustainability in their work as finance professionals. A new Master of Advanced Studies (MAS) in Sustainable Finance is set to be launched in fall 2021 and will run in conjunction with the CAS, allowing easy transfer of credits to those who wish to upgrade. The program will be intertwined with the MAS in Finance, greatly expanding the range of courses on offer regarding sustainability in finance.
