We are excited to share that registration for Arizona State University's Sustainability Opportunity program is now OPEN!

This 6-week, intensive online certificate course combines the power of the consistently top ranked W. P. Carey School of Business with the pioneering first-in-the-nation School of Sustainability, part of ASU College of Global Futures.

Faculty from ASU’s School of Sustainability and the Department of Supply Chain Management will provide instruction and offer practical insights.

“The certificate program will examine sustainability not only through the lens of the environment but also through the lens of business,” says Professor of Supply Chain Management Kevin Dooley. “It’s not just, ‘How do we reach a goal like, say, using less water,’ but ‘How do we do so in a way that reduces the footprint of doing business from the bottom line up?’” 

“The program is really about building leadership in you so that you can go forward and take this to your career and your enterprise and build a sustainable future” says Professor George Basile of the School of Sustainability.  

The next certificate program begins on August 30, 2021 and is 100% online. The 6-week curriculum is designed for mid-career professionals in the private sector who want to create a decided advantage in the marketplace by reorienting their professional and organizational abilities toward sustainability and resiliency, with a focus on leveraging the opportunities presented by both. 

Participants will also benefit from a professional cohort and sustainability network of peers in the private sector, representing a diversity of roles, ranks, company sizes, and industries. This includes managers, directors, senior directors, vice presidents, and senior vice presidents — all those with strategic oversight of sustainability, corporate social responsibility (CSR), or the integration of environmental, social, and governance (ESG), as well as operational managers who aspire to such a role. 

Together, participants will work to identify leverage points for organizational change and professional development to achieve a sustainability advantage, and help increase organizational resilience. Sessions and field study will enable them to leave with tangible, applied tools that can be used in their workplace and personal lives. 

The program is capped at 24 participants, and our last program completely sold out, so register soon if you're interested!
