Resumen: Purpose Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) offer courses and programmes focusing on sustainability in economics, as courses on sustainable development (SD), which examine the economic, social and environmental dimensions of SD. This article examines sustainability integration in economics degree programmes. Design/methodology/approach Through an extensive literature review in Web of Science (WoS) and information search in Google, conducting to 28 relevant case studies, the article elucidates the emphasis given to sustainability as part of economics degree programmes in HEIs. FindingsFindings The results suggest that, whereas the inclusion of sustainability components in this field is a growing trend, much still needs to be done in order to ensure that matters related to SD are part of the routine of university students studying economics. Originality The novelty of this study lies in addressing sustainability with the specific economics focus programmes within the HEIs context. Research limitations/implications It is worth noting that the literature review conducted in WoS was primarily aimed at assisting in the selection of university case studies. The 28 university case studies scrutinised in this study may lack sufficient representation from numerous developing countries. Practical implications This study highlights challenges in integrating the SD into economics degree programmes, suggesting the need for curriculum adjustments as underscoring operational issues, acting as barriers. The inclusion of sustainability in economics programmes must navigate operational issues stemming from packed timetables and busy schedules, requiring innovative solutions. Social implications As far as the authors are aware, this study holds substantial importance in its emphasis on implementing sustainability within HEIs' economics programmes, assisting in pursuing SD.
