Our society is evolving more and more rapidly and the financial world is no exception to the rule.  Faced with a desire for transparency and major environmental and societal challenges, it is time to integrate criteria related to the climate as well as ethics, sustainability and governance (ESG) into the investment and management processes. Responsible investment must encourage both companies and management companies to take into account extra-financial criteria as well as various risks that may arise. 

Our program in "Sustainable and Climate Finance" aims to prepare students for these new challenges in the world of finance.


The training is given completely in English and is both theoretical and practical. All the theoretical elements considered are illustrated by concrete cases. It includes the quantitative aspects (modeling, algorithms, etc.) of the mechanics of financial products and management methods. Computer tools and multimedia technology are also used.  The training is organized in a hybrid mode with some sessions online and others in person.

For whom?

This high-level program is intended for academics who already have training or experience in the field of financial management and who wish to develop their skills and competencies in the specific field of green, ethical and sustainable finance.

It aims to prepare financial managers for the new challenges that the world of finance must address.

This course is also a springboard for candidates for the "Sustainability and Climate Risk (SCR®) Certificate"  of the Global Association of Risk Professionals (GARP).

What our alumni say about it

In transition from a career as a financial executive, I decided to take the Sustainable & Climate Finance program at HEC Liège on a staggered timetable, in order to gain a better understanding of the challenges of sustainable finance and increase my chances of repositioning myself professionally. Essentially practical and geared towards banking and insurance, this course is taught by professionals well-versed in recent standards, notably those stemming from the European Green Deal, as well as their (early) application in the financial sector. Nevertheless, this academic path also requires a serious theoretical grounding and the successful completion of technical courses in financial risk management, which can be "challenging" for certain student profiles coming from other streams, or further down the career ladder like myself. I greatly appreciated the many opportunities for exchange with the instructors and the small group of fellow students, particularly through the practical work. I highly recommend this course to anyone interested in the future of finance!
