The Student Sustainability Experiential Learning Program (SSELP) gives you real-world experience in working with the opportunities and challenges associated with business and sustainability. Students enrolled at the Business School can participate in the SSELP through specialized internships, a field study course, and guest speaker series.
The Business School has established contacts with local companies and government agencies for sustainability-related internships available to both graduate and undergraduate students. Internship opportunities are typically coordinated through the School's Experiential Learning Center and a faculty member.
Graduate Sustainability Field Study Course
The SSELP program includes a graduate Sustainability Field Study course. Students work individually or in small teams to conduct a semester-long sustainability project in a local company, government agency or non-profit.
These projects address a clearly identified need and lead to a well-defined product or deliverable that can be achieved within the duration of a single semester.
All course directors in the Managing for Sustainability program are encouraged to make frequent use of outside speakers from the School's local business and government agency contacts to bring real-world experience and practical examples into their sustainability teachings.
