In September 2020, Finance and Economics Masters students in their second year of study at the University of Luxembourg will be able to choose Sustainable Finance as their specialisation. This new track, supported by a Chair in Sustainable Finance, will give students the skills they need to face a rapidly evolving economic context where climate change is creating risk and uncertainty at all levels of the corporate structure.
The Sustainable Finance track has been designed and developed by academics and professionals working in the financial industry, with hands-on experience in modelling and managing sustainability risks, performing ESG (Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance) due-diligence of investments and drafting CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) reports.
Students of this track will proactively and critically engage with case studies, green products, risk methodologies, reporting systems and practical solutions adopted by financial institutions in the area of sustainable finance and investment.
This new track is setting the course for educating about the emerging challenges and opportunities related to Sustainable Finance and demonstrates leadership in shaping the future of the financial industry in Luxembourg and beyond.
