MBA Sustainability


In recent years, Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors have become crucial in the business arena. Today, companies worldwide that seek success, acknowledgement and financial investment must be socially responsible, embrace sustainable business practices and demonstrate high ESG rankings.

Accordingly, the demand for ESG professionals has never been higher. This includes Sustainability Experts, ESG Analysts, ESG Consultants, Energy & Climate Experts, Corporate Social Responsibility Experts and more.

As Israel is rated a global leader in the innovation of clean technologies, renewable energy and water solutions, and the University of Haifa is the first to align to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) we are committed to address this pressing issue. This is why we have designed our unique international MBA Program in Sustainability to provide future global leaders with cutting-edge ESG-related knowledge and tools for real-time sustainable business management and environmental leadership.



Collaborating with the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Management, our MBA program in Sustainability combines high academic standards, an innovative sustainability mindset and an international learning environment. Our study program includes:

  • Practical core ESG-related courses aimed at developing crucial sustainable business leadership skills for today’s global workplace.
  • Green business entrepreneurship courses designed to learn, practice, and meet with industry leaders, investors, and top executives.
  • An applied final project in a real-world business setting.
  • A growing professional network of globally renowned experts and students from all over the world.
  • Diverse scholarship options to help fund your education. *
  • Optional GMAT exam waiver. *

*For eligible students.
**Remote learning will be optional during the first trimester.
