Strategic Leadership towards Sustainability Masters Programme (MSLS) at Blekinge Institute of Technology

Are you ready to innovate for a sustainable future?

Blekinge Institute of Technology (BTH) in Karlskrona, Sweden is looking for prospective students for a Master’s degree in Sustainable Product-Service System Innovation (MSPI). Do you know an engineer, designer or product innovator looking to enhance their skills and expertise?

As our world becomes increasingly complex and the need for more sustainable products and services becomes essential, designers and engineers on the cutting edge of sustainable innovative practices are increasing in demand. Industry needs people who understand what the world wants: innovative products and services delivered in the most sustainable way possible.

At BTH, we believe that combining an overarching approach to socio-ecological sustainability with a disciplined focus on meeting market and human needs through product-service systems is the way of the future, and we are doing our part to show the way. By closely collaborating with our industrial partners (to see our industrial partners click here) <> , we are preparing people to be the next generation of innovators. They will be bringing together engineering, innovation, and sustainability competence through this unique master's programme.

The MSPI programme supports the sustainable development of global economy and society. Check out our programme design here <> .
The design of the MSPI programme has been done in response to the industrial demand for graduates who can combine engineering competence with sustainability knowledge to help deliver new product-service systems. Therefore this programme is in tight and on-going connection with industries. It is necessary to have a structured overview of the system "society in the biosphere" - and this is exactly what we will share with you in this programme.

More specifically, the academic goals of participating students are to be able to:

  • Analyze sustainability challenges for an organization in a scientific manner.
  • Introduce a strategic perspective of sustainability to a product innovation process in a company.
  • Use new methods and tools, and former engineering specialty, to work with sustainable product and service innovation in industry.
  • Support a transition towards a more service-oriented economy.

The city is situated on an archipelago and has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its unique naval heritage.
