The CPP Sustainability is a practice-oriented program at an academic level. If you are looking for a mix between practice and theory and would like to put what you have learned into practice, this is the program for you.
Slowly but surely, sustainability is becoming a business proposition. As part of this, organizations increasingly see value in the Circular Economy. However, many companies and governments still struggle with the so-called intention-action gap: how will the circular economy really create value?
Closed loop supply chains are for organizations a link between strategic intent and operational action. This model introduces you to state-of-the-art concepts and applications, best practices in return management, strategy (re)formulation, redesign of business processes and change management.
