Lecturer sustainable business – Werkenbijhogescholen.nl – Maastricht



Sustainability has become an increasingly important aspect in all realms of society and also in the hospitality industry. In both the bachelor and master program offered at our school, sustainability will therefore play a more important role in the curriculum. Topics in this domain include: sustainable development, sustainable business models, application of the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the 5 P’s, regenerative business and systems thinking. Besides a theoretical approach of the subject matter, much attention is paid to the practical application of this knowledge in various areas of hospitality management and on our campus.

We are currently in a three-year process of embedding sustainability systemically at our school, using the Whole School Approach (WSA). You will be part of group of colleagues dedicated to implementing this plan, working closely with one other colleague specialized sustainable business. Within the process of carrying out the planned changes and initiatives, your input and expertise would prove of great value at this specific step of our endeavour.
