Students can complete the accelerated degree program in as little as 18 months, through a completely online learning environment that encourages interaction between students and instructors.

This certificate also could be attractive to those who want to try out graduate-level coursework before pursuing an MBA.

Candidates for this certificate would include those who have or desire management roles in organizations committed to sustainability; those with professional degrees who seek to augment their practices with more positive economic, environmental and social impact; and those who want to assist other organizations in a consulting capacity. Both certificates also offer concentrations in Renewable Energy, Government Policy & Administration, Green Development or Natural and Organic Resources.
