The Certificate of Advanced Study in Sustainable Enterprise (CASSE) is offered collaboratively by the Whitman School of Management, the College of Engineering and Computer Science, the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry, and the Syracuse Center of Excellence in Environmental and Energy Systems. The CASSE integrates business, science, engineering, policy, and practice, taking a transdisciplinary approach to sustainable enterprise.
Students who complete the certificate will be fluent in the economic, environmental, and social dimensions of sustainability and their interdependence; systems science and its relationship to sustainability; and the natural, financial, technical, legal, and social drivers of sustainability strategy in businesses and other organizations. They will be prepared to engage in transdisciplinary collaboration to develop sustainable solutions to complex organizational challenges.
The Whitman School has been accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International) since 1920.
