Sustainability Week at the UPF Barcelona School of Management, framed within the activity plan of the Master of Science in Sustainability Management, was not just any week. Between 13 and 17 February, the students on this program, carried out jointly with ESCI-UPF, left the classrooms and changed their usual classes for daily visits and talks related to sustainability from different viewpoints.

The objective of this initiative is for students to personally know the reality of the world of sustainability in various sectors of activity, with the possibility of consulting with and asking questions of the different experts with whom they had the opportunity to exchange views.

ESCI-UPF Deputy Director of the Master’s Degree and promoter of the initiative, Lela Mélon, explained that “now more than ever, and especially in the field of sustainability, a balanced approach is needed to understand the challenges and solutions related to business sustainability, and for this an intersectoral understanding is needed.”

That’s exactly what Sustainability Week offered the School’s students: an immersive intersectoral experience (sustainable tourism, retail, sustainable finance, eco-labelling, sustainable construction, waste management, etc.), with meetings with leading professionals in their fields and the possibility of students expanding their network of contacts. In this way, students were able to put their knowledge into practice before leaving the program.
