MS in Management: Specializations

Managing for Sustainability

More than ever before, major companies and entrepreneurial ventures are seeking competitive advantage and success by embracing sustainability—social and environmental responsibility—as a core business strategy. 

Farsighted leaders recognize that this new way of doing business requires skills in sustainable management including social entrepreneurialism, eco-efficiency, inter-disciplinary problem solving and a triple bottom line approach of economics, environment and society.

Make your degree a sustainable MS by adding the Managing for Sustainability specialization and learn what businesses are facing in a world where resources are scarce, social safety nets are declining, and customers and commentators are concerned about a company's investment in corporate responsibility.
