Sustainable Finance

Are you interested in analysing and solving financial problems in investment and business? Are you compelled by the ways in which sustainability issues are changing our understanding of the concept of finance? Do you want to know more about the interdependence between finance and sustainability? Then the specialisation in Sustainable Finance could be right for you. As part of the master's programme in International Business, the specialisation combines finance with the principles of sustainability: environment, society and governance.

Following the 2008 financial crisis and on-going criticism of banks and corporations, there is great demand for finance professionals who can implement sustainability principles in a company while maintaining profitability. Bridging the gap between traditional capitalism and a new context of shared economic and social value, sustainable finance is quickly becoming a core part of the mission of financial institutions and companies.

      "Living and studying in Maastricht has been simply incredible and a complete contrast to my life in Sydney, Australia. It is such a beautiful and international town, many students and such a friendly environment. I love cycling to class and experiencing a new learning system (Problem Based Learning).
      I like the concept of having fewer lectures and get the chance to work with fellow students on ideas and cases in a small class. Maastricht is unique being on the border of both Germany and Belgium, perfect place for traveling! Last weekend I was in England, next I'll be in the Czech Republic! One of the best times of my life to date!"
