Every 8th Swiss student chooses a business or economics programme and later often takes on influential management positions in companies, NGO's or the public sector. However, Sustainability oriented values and methods are still poorly integrated in many management and economics degree programs. Integration is central, since the decisions of managers have a major impact on the natural foundations of life. The initiative of WWF Switzerland, the University of St. Gallen and other partners promotes within pilot projects relevant competencies such as transdisciplinary, critical and integrative thinking and acting. In addition, a network of economic university actors is being developed to share experiences and support didactic skills of lecturers.
