It will draw upon sophisticated environmental measurement tools and cutting edge environmental science to help students fully understand the systematic and organizational role of sustainability in any organization.
The program is ideal for professionals currently working in or aspiring to be in management positions in general organizational management, regulatory compliance, facilities operations, and environmental stewardship. It is an innovative program that is applicable to many fields including the growing field of sustainability management, risk and environment management, financial services, utilities, industrial manufacturing, energy, pharmaceuticals, academia, health care, media, transportation, food service, and technology, among others. The M.S. in Sustainability Management program may be taken on a part-time or full-time basis.
In response to the increasing global challenges all organizations face, from limiting their carbon emissions to managing their water resources, the program melds academic leadership, scientific rigor, and professional practice to form a unique interdisciplinary community dedicated to making lasting advances in global sustainability practice.
