Sustainability Management

The Master of Science in Sustainability Management (MScSM) program provides the training for our graduates to act outside the traditional disciplinary black boxes; integrate knowledge from management, social, and natural sciences to address sustainability issues; and make leading contributions and lasting advances in sustainability management.

The program is unique among science and management graduate programs by providing a strong foundation in sustainability management while offering an opportunity to specialize in a management or science concentration.

The program is designed for students from diverse backgrounds such as management science, social science, natural science and engineering. The program was developed in consultation with leaders and future employers in business, non-profit, research, and government organizations.

The MScSM degree is for individuals who want to pursue management careers in sustainability-related divisions and organizations.
