A Graduate Certificate in Sustainability and Business is designed to provide students with the skills and knowledge needed to help organizations create long-term value through sustainable business strategy development. In just four or five courses, students will broaden their understanding of how successful companies invest in sustainability efforts to increase operational efficiency while also driving social and internal value.
Successful students will develop an understanding of global competition and market dominance and apply this to creating shareholder value in a sustainable environment. Elective offerings include social entrepreneurship or sustainable practices in fields including supply chain management, leadership, public policy, and the environment.
Students will take one required course and either three or four elective courses. The minimum required number of courses to earn a certificate is four; however, many students elect to take an additional elective in order to broaden their expertise.
Our Graduate Certificate in Sustainability and Business enrolls in January, May, and September.
