Transforming Organizations Facing A Big Challenge

Today’s reference to sustainable development as a response to environmental "crisis" no longer allows us to grasp the deep transformations witnessed by the Earth’s entry into a new geological and climatic epoch: the Anthropocene. This term refers to a new geological period dating back to the Industrial Revolution marked by the impact of human activities. Well beyond the design of a new product, a new service, or a new business model, design today needs to tackle the issue of strategic anticipation that is impacting all socio-economic activities. It is precisely to address this imperative and the growing demand from students who are increasingly concerned about these challenges that ESC Clermont Business School and Strate Ecole de Design are offering this new program which is the first of its kind in the world.


Training professionals from different fields mainly associated with the design and strategic management; developing means of action to transform organizations; adopting a prospective approach and taking into account ecological disruptions in the Anthropocene Era. This program responds to strong societal demand from organizations, as well as the academic world, from both students and scholars alike.

Value Proposition

  • Addressing the Anthropocene through the prism of design, integrating the strategy of the humanities and the strategy of organizations.
  • In-depth reframing of issues historically associated with sustainable development and corporate social responsibility.
  • Taking into account the contributions of environmental, climate, and engineering sciences, especially for decision-making and organizational transformation.
