Executive Opportunities

Executive programs at Stern help business leaders embed sustainability in their organizations' core business strategies.
NYU Stern offers several certificate courses throughout the year in corporate sustainability and sustainable finance, taught by CSB Director and Clinical Professor Tensie Whelan and other esteemed faculty. These courses equip participants with the ability to help their business be a force for change through ESG (environment, social, and governance) investing, sustainable supply chain management, employee and consumer engagement, sustainability marketing, and more. With companies facing greater demands for transparency, societal challenges such as poverty and inequity as well as natural resource constraints like less available water and a warmer climate, these skills are critical to the future of business and society. Stern also offers sustainable business courses of study through the MBA and Executive MBA programs.
