It is becoming more and more apparent that our established economic models are just not sustainable. In the Netherlands, Dutch government and businesses are embracing more circular economic models, and other countries around the globe are also making similar transitions because our current linear economy is simply unsustainable and dependent on the unlimited extraction of limited resources. It is essential that organizations and individuals understand the implications of this circular economy transition. A circular economy is designed to get as much value out of existing resources as possible.

National and international shifts from linear to circular economies bring new responsibilities and opportunities for businesses operating domestically and globally. This short course helps managers understand what a circular economy is and how they can take advantage of the business opportunities it offers.

Spread across five weeks, this intensive two-and-a-half-day masterclass provides you with a new way of understanding business and societal systems. Next to that, you are expected to do some self-study. Successful completion of this masterclass will result in obtaining an official certificate. Successful completion of this masterclass will result in obtaining a certificate, issued by the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences.
