There are many definitions for the expression “Teaching of Organizational Sustainability Management”, but it can be broadly understood as a commitment that a University should have toward society, expressed through acts and attitudes that affect it from the social, environmental, economic and cultural points of view. In Latin America, in particular, such topic is still in the maturation stage and few Universities can really develop sustainability teaching practices integrated into the organizations’ management system. This article aims to present a case study of the Post-Graduation Program in Management Systems (PPSIG) at Fluminense Federal University (Niter—i, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil). To achieve this research objective, a literature review and a data mining study were carried out in the PPSIG database to analyze its performance and results, including scientific production, technical reports, research projects, teaching activities, official documents, among others. This study reveals that factors such as the promotion of interdisciplinary courses, social actions, internationalization, interinstitutional integration, among others, contribute to the promotion of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD), making PPSIG a highly qualified agent for the implementation of sustainability in the region.
