Western International School of Shanghai
has announced a new partnership with the Sustainability Management School, SUMAS
, a top business school in Switzerland, to offer students a new IBCP (International Baccalaureate Career Program) pathway focus on Business & Sustainability.
As well as being a trending term, thanks largely in part to young environmental activists, the concept of sustainability in business is growing, creating thousands of new roles throughout the world – which is pretty cool in itself, without the added bonus of big corporations finally getting their hands stuck into the big, green issue. These days, many companies are going so far as to require their C-level executives to have an education related to sustainability or at least some experience in the area.
Being aware of this new demand, WISS
feels it is important to have these collaborations as it helps develop responsible young leaders with the appropriate skills and qualities needed not only for a successful business career but a greener future for all.
