Bochum International Summer School global

Sustainability and Governance

The Faculty of Management and Economics at the Ruhr-University Bochum is offering the first BISSglobal event on "Sustainability and Governance" in 2015.

Sustainable management is a global topic. In what way can economic growth and environmental protection be reconciled? Is ‘green’ growth even possible?
In what way should institutions be designed in order to enable sustainable business? What types of management tools are available to the state?

These and many other questions are of greater policy relevance and will be examined in this Summer School. BISSglobal is aimed at advanced undergraduate students with good understanding of Macroeconomics and Microeconomics. A basic comprehension of Mathematics for Economists would also be useful.

In the summer of 2015 RUB will be offering three two-week courses, for each course 5 ECTS credits may be awarded. In addition to the stimulating materials provided, relevant and exiting excursions will also be on offer.
