Today’s business models have generated unforeseen levels of economic growth and technological innovation, but they have also generated severe strains on our environment, social systems and personal lives. We believe that finding long-term solutions to these tensions means fundamentally transforming the organizations, markets, and communities in which we live and work.
The MIT Sloan Sustainability Certificate provides students deep knowledge about sustainability and a top-notch understanding of management fundamentals, enabling our alumni to lead this transformation.
Note: The Certificate is only open to masters-level students at MIT, as an add-on to our existing degree programs. It is not an executive education program. Please see the “Admissions” section for a list of programs whose students are eligible for the Certificate.
