Abstract: Education evolves with the changes in technological innovations. This paper aims to explore a model for curriculum development at higher education level. A curriculum which evolves dynamically taking inputs from the external environment is essential as the innovation and disruption cycles tend to get shorter and the global skills gap tends to get larger. A data driven approach is suggested to develop an evolving curriculum aligned to the global trend of making management educational courses more responsible towards sustainability development. The United Nations Global Indicator framework for Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is used to form a dictionary of sustainability related concepts and keywords using content analysis. This dictionary is then used as the data driven mechanism to evaluate the current sustainability orientation of a curriculum and identify the missing keyword and concept in the curriculum.

Keywords: curriculum development; management education; sustainable development goals; SDGs; data driven; higher education.
