The Change Leadership for Sustainability Program prepares students to advance sustainability across complex systems in pursuit of human well-being now and in the future.

We offer Executive Education programs and a coterminal masters degree to prepare leaders with the knowledge, mindsets and practical skills needed to understand and intervene in complex systems to advance sustainability – securing human well-being around the world and across generations. Executive education is offered through open-enrollment programs, custom programs designed for individual clients and online courses. The degree in Sustainability Science and Practice is available as a Master of Science or Master of Arts, depending on the chosen set of courses.  As part of the masters degree, students complete a 120-hour practicum experience, using their new knowledge and skills to work towards sustainability goals with diverse decision makers.

The Executive Program and masters degree integrate theoretical and conceptual knowledge with practical tools to enable leaders to develop core knowledge across three elements:

  1. Understanding Complex Social Environmental Systems
  2. Understanding Decision Making and Developing Strategies for Change
  3. Designing Innovations with Impact at Scale
