The accredited MBA course

"Integrated Sustainability Management - QUAR" is the expression of Zittau / Görlitz University's policy of creating new market- and application-oriented courses.

The degree program enables graduates to meet the needs of the present day, which are characterized by globalization, a scarcity of resources and a growing competition.

The four named ones illustrate the areas of concern that an entrepreneurial sustainability management from our point of view encompasses:

  • Q quality management
  • U nvironmental management
  • A rbeitsschutzmanagement
  • R isikomanagement

The four areas form the core modules of our course. They are supplemented by the module complex leadership and social competencies as well as compulsory elective modules from the economic sciences.

Vocational training course

Our offer is aimed at professionals who want more than just professional further training.
