The Master of Sustainability Management program prepares students to accelerate an organization’s sustainability efforts by providing contextual knowledge and practical management skills while emphasizing best practices to “lead from wherever you are” in the organizational structure. Students will have the opportunity to develop strategies for making the business case for sustainability, including advancing an organization’s sustainability goals, embedding sustainability within an organization’s overall strategy, and measuring the economic, environmental, and social impacts of an organization’s sustainability initiatives. Through courses in business strategy, climate change, global supply chains, sustainable finance, and sustainability reporting, students will discover approaches to integrating environmental, social, and governance (ESG) criteria into every aspect of an organization’s business model, strategy, and operations. Students will also explore topics that are increasingly important in the context of sustainability, including stakeholder engagement, business and human rights, environmental justice, and diversity, equity, and inclusion.
A Master of Sustainability Management degree requires 24 units of course work offered in the fall, spring, and summer semesters. Admissions requirements may be found on the program website.
