MIT Sloan Offers New Sustainability Certificate
Earlier this week, a tweet from MIT Sloan School of Management alerted followers to the school’s new graduate sustainability certificate, which aims to teach students how to balance economic growth with environmental sustainability.
By considering effective strategies at multiple levels–individual, organizational, community, global–the new Certificate in Sustainable Business views sustainability across many systems. The interdependent dynamics of economic, societal, and environmental systems, the school explains, means success overall is influenced by success across all areas.
According to the news release, the required core and elective courses in the Certificate Program explicitly leverage Sloan’s strengths in process improvement; organizational learning and adaptation; entrepreneurship and commercialization; the dynamics of organizational and social change; and the interactions of markets, firms and organizations, while linking to MIT’s strengths in science and technology through implementation.
