Sustainability Career Boot Camp for Undergraduates

All future business leaders must understand the complexities of managing in an increasingly resource constrained world, and as such, we believe that all NYU Stern students should graduate with an understanding of the key skills, frameworks and tools to integrate sustainability into any position and industry they enter. In order to equip NYU Stern undergraduate students with the skills necessary to be leaders in sustainable business, we are pleased to host our annual Sustainability Career Boot Camp.

The Sustainability Career Boot Camp, hosted by the NYU Stern Center for Sustainable Business, provides students with an intensive training program to prepare them for a variety of sustainability-oriented careers. The students will learn concepts such as applying a sustainability lens to problem solving, developing sustainability strategies, understanding key tools and frameworks related to sustainability, and exploring different career paths in the sustainability field.

The inaugural Sustainability Career Boot Camp, on March 22-23rd 2018, included a case competition sponsored by PwC. The first half of the program consisted of a presentation explaining the benefits of sustainability in business and how for-profit businesses can thrive in a competitive setting while still creating shared value. The students worked in groups to create sustainable solutions for certain industries and presented them to the class. The second half of the program consisted of a panel of professionls in business whose careers are related to sustainability. After the panel, students were allowed an hour to pepare presentations that were then shown to actual employees of PwC. 

This year's Boot Camp will feature a case challenge presented and sponsored by HSBC. Students will have the opportunity to work with HSBC professionals, including their recruitment team, on a sustainability strategy exercise.
