Overview

The Certificate of Graduate Study in Sustainable Enterprise provides a comprehensive framework for learning how enterprises can be both profitable and responsible, providing students with the business strategies, experience, professional network, and credentials to make an impact on their careers and the planet.

The Certificate of Graduate Study in Sustainable Enterprise is designed to:

  • Develop students' business knowledge as they learn how sustainability issues impact business practices across organizational divisions
  • Progress students' understanding of how enterprises stay competitive by incorporating triple bottom line concepts into their business strategy

The fully online certificate will require 15 credits in the field of sustainable enterprise, including four required courses (12 credits) from three core enterprise content areas, including: accounting, marketing, operations, and supply chains, and one required course (3 credits) in a capstone course designed around leading sustainable innovation.

The program will offer two online courses each semester, with students expected to take one or both courses.
