The International Programme on the Management of Sustainability (IPMS) is a one-of-a-kind course designed to teach strategies and innovative approaches to meet the challenges of sustainability in the public, private and non-profit sectors. The courses are taught by professors from Cambridge, USA, and other world leading sustainability experts. The faculty is headed by Professor William Moomaw of the Fletcher School of Tufts University, one of the first scientists who focused on researching climate change.

The faculty combined with participants from carefully chosen cultural backgrounds and stakeholder perspectives, provides a unique and challenging learning experience.
