The Environmental Management and Business Institute (EMBI) in conjunction with faculty from Business Administration, Natural and Applied Sciences, and Public and Environmental Affairs offers a broad-based certificate which documents that students have achieved an understanding of the importance of sustainable practices in business activities and community affairs, regardless of what area of emphasis a student’s degree program may be centered upon.  Understanding that our global future rests upon creating a citizenry that is aware of the need for economic, environmental, and social responsibility is critical for our world economy.

A certificate in Environmental Sustainability and Business is available to students in all academic programs. It consists of a supporting course structure that is complementary to the existing general education requirements and consistent with current credit-load requirements, and thereby will not delay a student’s graduation.  The main component of the certificate program is an intensive business internship or co-op experience.
