Achievements Curriculum Integration in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability

International Academy Montreux has recently gone through a revision of all subject, curricula and degree paths. We seek to connect all our degrees by cutting across subject-matter lines and pointing out unifying concepts. We focus on making connections that are relevant for our students in real life. Our interdisciplinary approach builds subjects around common learnings across disciplines. These common learnings include not only the above-mentioned corporate sustainability and responsibility but ethical consumerism, socially responsible investing and creation of shared value.

Achievements Research Development in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability

International Academy Montreux always looks out for increasing and/or expanding our skills and knowledge. Especially, through collaboration with companies who sponsor some our degree paths and companies where we send our students for internships. Collaboration with these companies has allowed us to keep both professor and student skills current, supported our students' career goals and improved overall classroom performance.
Considering the future, we look to develop on-the-job development of our internship students by further integrating work experience with our academic programmes. We also seek to close the gap that may exist between experience in the classroom and in the workplace. Finally, we want our students to develop transferrable skills that can easily be carried from internship to class and vice versa.
