Earn an official certificate of professional achievement from Yale University.

As sustainability becomes an increasingly critical part of global consciousness, businesses are faced with one of their biggest opportunities for innovation to date. Today, companies have the chance to transform their practices to drive not only progress, but profits as well.

The Corporate Sustainability Management: Risk, Profit, and Purpose online program from the Yale School of Management Executive Education provides a practical guide for incorporating sustainability into your business strategy. The program features a wide variety of on-the-job resources, insights from industry leaders, case studies, discussions, and real-world applications. At the end of six weeks, you’ll walk away with an understanding of the potential financial impact of sustainability issues, and be equipped with the best practices and tools for leveraging opportunities in sustainability to gain a competitive edge.

Who should attend?

Is this program for you?

This program benefits business leaders and executives looking to develop a competitive advantage by offering them the tools needed to give strategic direction on sustainability. It also provides valuable resources for professionals and specialists who want to drive positive change in their role, as well as those working in the risk management and business continuity space. In addition, the program equips consultants with the insight needed to better advise clients, and provides public sector policymakers and regulators with an in-depth understanding of the impact of sustainability measures on business.

How does this program differ from the Sustainable Finance and Investment online program?

The Corporate Sustainability Management: Risk, Profit, and Purpose online program is designed to help you embed sustainability and sustainable practices into the core of your business strategies. The Sustainable Finance and Investment online program, on the other hand, focuses primarily on equipping you to make more informed analyses and decisions when investing in sustainable assets and products.
