Environmental Sustainability

The environmental sustainability concentration is a study of how sustainability has become a primary driver for innovation and business success as supply chains became more transparent over the last few decades.

It’s vital that all entrepreneurs and young professionals, whatever the field, have a clear understanding of how business decisions affect the environment, natural resources, and future generations.

Take a course that covers the philosophical narratives of sustainability. Or, how climate change shapes national and global politics. Or, how it fits into critical race theory. You have the chance to take literature, marketing, and social science courses that deepen your understanding of the role business plays in protecting our planet.
