Learning outcomes

The Creative Sustainability minor study is offered to all master’s student in Aalto University in order to help to broaden and deepen sustainability knowledge and get acquainted with multidisciplinary approach during one’s own master degree studies.

The minor supports particularly such skills that are needed in the planning and designing of sustainable solutions in the built environment and in the management of both design and business innovation and those social conflicts that are inherent in the sustainability agenda.

The interdisciplinarity of the programme will enhance the understanding of the work practices of sustainability experts from different fields as well the skills of communication about sustainability.
