Imperial College Executive Education has partnered with the London office of Bain & Company to provide a specialist ESG-focused training programme, upskilling the company’s consultants around the world.
In the largest move of its kind within the top tier management consulting sector, Bain & Company’s Further Academy Programme is offering an accelerated and specialised, post-graduate-level global ESG training programme to upskill all its consultants across the firm worldwide.
Faculty from Imperial College Business School, Grantham Institute and Centre for Environmental Policy have collaborated to create a curriculum tailored to support the firm’s goal of integrating ESG into 100% of its client work, reflecting the global imperative for companies across sectors to build sustainability and ESG into the fabric of their businesses.
Bain’s consultants and advisors, from entry-level to senior partners, will join the programme, equipping them to better advise on ESG issues within their areas of expertise and deliver on Bain’s own ambitious sustainable development goals.
Alongside Imperial, other world class institutions such as; Massachusetts Institute of Technology, HEC Paris, Solvay Brussels School of Economics and Management, Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands and Melbourne Business School’s Centre for Sustainability and Business in Australia, will also provide their expertise.
François Faelli, Global Managing Partner for ESG at Bain & Company, said: “Reaching net zero on a global scale requires a tremendous investment in ESG skills. The next generation of business leaders must intuitively understand how to balance financial and non-financial objectives. I am proud to say that we will very shortly have succeeded in delivering this training for thousands of our advisors who will help steer our clients towards a more sustainable future.”
David Brown, Director of Executive Education at Imperial College Business School, added: "Imperial College is at the forefront of research and innovation for tackling the climate emergency, building new energy solutions, circular economies and driving sustainable and inclusive development. Understanding and addressing these challenges is a core part of our mission.”
