Online Business Degrees in Sustainability



The list of colleges and universities offering degrees, majors, or certificates in sustainable business continues to grow (see a complete list in the right sidebar of this blog). I often receive emails asking if I know where to get an online degree in sustainable business. For those asking this question, last week, two new programs were announced.

The University of Wisconsin has launched an online Bachelor of Science degree in Sustainable Management. Students must complete the first two years of undergraduate general education studies before being admitted to the Sustainable Management program. The program includes courses in environmental studies, triple bottom line accounting, natural resource management, information systems, logistics, supply chain management, and sustainability.

For those seeking a graduate degree, Marylhurst University has launched an online MBA with curriculum in sustainability. The program includes courses in Program topics to include:
Ethical Issues and Environmental Law, Green and Social Marketing, Ecological Economics,Managerial and Environmental Accounting, and Management: A Triple Bottom Line Approach.

Update July 22, 2009: University of Southern Maine offers an online graduate certificate in sustainable business.
Update August 17, 2009: Antioch University offers an online MBA in Organizational and Environmental Sustainability

This is a very interesting post, and the comments are also fantastic to read. I’ll have to have a little re-think about my own contact form on our new website, as this poses some interesting questions!

Online Business Degrees

First, know exactly why you want to earn your degree online. Do you want to get a promotion with your current employer, but s/he is only looking at coworkers with degrees? Are you seeing positions posted online or in the newspapers that you know you can do, but you need a degree to apply? Is there a part of your background that could be filled out with some online courses, so that you could present yourself as a complete solution to an employer? Do you have a bachelors degree, but realize you need a masters to keep up with the competition? Or do you just want to be rewarded for your own long-term investment in your own personal and professional development.
