Our corporate sustainability program provides the tools, techniques and strategic thinking that business leaders need to build a coherent sustainability strategy. These outstanding graduates are now armed with the knowledge, skills and ability to make a difference in their organizations and the community.”

Bechtold said the course offers a broad overview of sustainability as well as a detailed review of major practices in sustainability. It also identifies the sustainable business strategies that offer the most effective return on investment and demonstrate how sustainability can become an ongoing strategic business practice.

“Our Postgraduate Diploma in Corporate Sustainability is aimed at business people who are in charge of defining and implementing sustainability initiatives for their organizations,” Bechtold said. “There are many sustainability type educational programs across the country, but none are as comprehensive and business focused as Furman’s program, which will be offered again in the spring of 2019.”
