Overview

The Micro-Certificate of Graduate Study in Sustainable Enterprise offers a means for graduate students from diverse backgrounds to learn how to practically embed sustainable development issues in the most prevalent form of business organizations – the family business, thereby helping them to balance their performance on the 3P dimensions of People, Planet and Profits

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

  • Develop students' understanding of the best and next practices of innovative family firms in sustainable development
