Are you concerned about the environment?  Do you feel there is still a lot of progress to be made on social issues?  Do you have a global perspective?  And, most importantly, do you feel that business, more often than not, can be the answer?  It sounds like you could be the perfect candidate for a dual degree program at the Erb Institute | Business for Sustainability and we’d love to meet you!

The Erb Institute was designed with the intent to equip business professionals like you with the skills and knowledge necessary to create environmentally, socially and economically sustainable organizations. With a dual-degree, graduates benefit from a richer set of experiences and can draw upon a broader sustainability skill set post-graduation making themselves especially attractive to employers.  Many of our students are able to complete the program in as little as one additional semester!

The MS from SEAS allows students to obtain an in-depth understanding of science, technology and policy issues related to sustainability, while developing skills related to systems thinking and critically applying them to the challenges of environmental and social change. The MBA from Ross develops an understanding of core management principles such as finance, economics, strategy and marketing, which are essential to the fundamental leadership skills necessary to enact change and become a more effective leader in any organizational setting.  The institute helps to ensure that this experience is a holistic one and offers complementary programming, opportunities and financial support to help guide your individual sustainability career.

Our tight-knit community of Erb students are passionate about bringing solutions to the growing number of sustainability issues our world faces and are ready to talk with you if you are interested in learning about their experience!
