MSM to develop specialized diploma program on Sustainable Development Management in peru


In cooperation with Centrum Graduate Business School in Peru MSM has won a Nuffic tender to develop a specialized diploma program on Sustainable Development Management at the Centrum Graduate School of Business in Lima.

Centrum Graduate School of Business is the leading business School in Lima, where they provide Master, Executive and non-degree Education programs to a variety of students in Peru. Already for 18 years Centrum and MSM are working together in providing a joint MBA degree in Peru.

The market in Peru is increasingly requesting for diploma programs dealing with topics such as the circular economy, development of a sustainable HR strategy, impact investment and social innovation. Centrum is especially interested in the international context experience on the development of courses related to sustainability which MSM will bring on board. The program will provide both the latest international insights as well as subjects which are more related to the Peruvian context. In addition, the program will link students to businesses and organizations with a sustainability question. This will give the students the possibility to get more practical experience but at the same time the involved businesses will be assisted with the development of more sustainable strategies. As such, this program will assist in the set-up of a business linkage program focusing on sustainability initially to Dutch Businesses operating in Peru.
