Organized by the School of Business and Economics Maastricht and SCOPE, the overall theme of the Symposium is: "Sustainable Future? Exploring Opportunities." In response to the increasing demand of society, and the environment for acting sustainable, companies find themselves in a situation in which they need to simultaneously explore new opportunities while at the same time focus on their existing core competencies. The growing importance of sustainability shines a light on the future opportunities, possibilities and difficulties that society and companies will face. Throughout a panel discussion and various workshops, each topic relates to sustainable aspects in the areas of Finance, Marketing, Economics and Econometrics.
By putting emphasis on a sustainable future, the SBE Symposium is focused on stimulating the broaden understandings of students and how our generation already can contribute to a sustainable future, by focusing on the opportunities and challenges companies experience, and how companies can develop sustainable core competencies.
Key note business speakers represent international A-brands during the Symposium.
