    The programme will be taught with a combination of lectures, cases, group work and use of online resources, in addition to the preparation and presentation of the group reports. In addition to the academic lecturers, several relevant individuals with market experience will also be included as lecturers and in debates.

    The students are expected to conduct a significant group report at an advanced level on a topic related to the overall scope of the course. The students are expected to present and defend, as well as discuss other groups’ reports in a 2-day final session. This session thus aggregates and concludes the learning outcomes for the students. Sustainable finance is a challenging, interdisciplinary subject where the students in particular benefit from reflecting, presenting and discussing challenging topics where the solutions also require mature judgements. This, combined with a generally critical approach towards the subjects, will also be applied during the lectures and class discussions.
