Whitman School of Management at Syracuse University recently announced the launch of an advanced credential in sustainability offered through the Sustainable Enterprise Partnership (SEP), which will provide the knowledge needed to address the economic, environmental, technical and social challenges facing enterprises seeking to achieve sustainable operations and practices.
The Certificate of Advanced Study in Sustainable Enterprise (CASSE) will engage graduate students from diverse academic backgrounds and uniquely integrates business, science, engineering and policy instruction with practical knowledge in sustainability.
It is delivered by expert faculty and researchers from Whitman, the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY-ESF), the L.C. Smith College of Engineering and Computer Science (LCS) and the Syracuse Center of Excellence in Environmental and Energy Systems (SyracuseCoE)””the four curricular partners of the SEP.
This collaboration is a key distinction of the CASSE in comparison to other graduate programs in business and sustainability.
The CASSE comes amid growing demand for professionals versed in sustainability issues and can contribute strategic solutions to the environmental, economic and social dilemmas facing enterprises, such as cost-effectively reducing atmospheric greenhouse gas output, efficiently managing energy use, incorporating clean technologies, and promoting sustainable decision making and principles.
CASSE graduates will also be prepared to spark innovation in enterprises to develop greener operations, models and practices, and help recognize the opportunities that advance an organization’s sustainability.
