The FS Sustainable World Academy offers professional and executive courses dedicated to the advancement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Our courses do not offer lofty phrases, but hand-on skills on how to finance and manage a better future for all. Our value proposition is to educate bankers, microfinance professionals, policy makers, students and businesses dedicated to sustainability about concrete techniques which can be put to use to achieve equitable and environmentally conscientious growth. 

For example, our e-campus programme “Certified Expert in Agricultural Finance”  teaches participants the intellectual tools to promote the eradication of  poverty (SDG 1), zero hunger (SDG 2), responsible consumption (SDG 12) and better life on land (SDG 15) by providing small agri-businesses with access to finance. This course, like all others offered by the Sustainable World Academy, is inspired by Frankfurt School’s unusual dual experience as a provider of technical assistance, and of course a research hub.

Course Portfolio contributes to SDGs

Our courses are clustered under 6 different topics – MSME Finance, Green Finance, Risk and Treasury, Agricultural Finance, Leadership & Management and Digital Transformation. We also offer customized programs based on your and your staff’s specific needs in order to build an advanced skillset with sustainability in foreground.

All our courses contribute to the following three SDGs – Goal 4 (Quality Education), Goal 8 (Decent Work and Economic Growth) and Goal 17 ( Partnerships for Goals).

About the Sustainable Development Goals

  • Make the UN Global Compact and its principles an integral part of our strategy, day-to-day operations, and campus culture

Events & More

Studying an online course has many advantages. But there is one particular disadvantage that many participants suffer from: usually you always learn alone, without face-to-face contact with peers, lecturers, or support team. We are trying to soften this weakness at least a little bit in trying to meet our alumni whenever and wherever possible. The main opportunities are during conferences and business trips we do and after our final exams.
