Georgetown Launches MBA Certificate in Sustainable Business

New certificate option to become available for the spring of 2020

Georgetown University's McDonough School of Business has announced that it will launch an MBA certificate in Sustainable Business. 

With the new certificate, the school hopes to prepare students to tackle the environmental and societal challenges that are facing business operations today.

The new certificate in Sustainable Business will be available to students in both the school's Full-time MBA as well as those in its 'Flex" MBA program.

The certificate's core class is the 'Structure of Global Industry,' which is the first course in the MBA for all students. The certificate will also require two elective courses: 'Environmentally Sustainable Operations and Business Models' and 'Corporate Social Responsibility.' Beyond those required classes, students will need to complete 4.5 elective credits, from a roster of courses like 'Investing for Impact,' 'Understanding Social Innovation,' and 'The Business of Water,' among others.

Georgetown's new Sustainable Business MBA certificate will launch in the spring of 2020.
