Green Business Degree

Empire State College has created a new degree program for people interested in business and environmental sustainability.

A sampling of courses that have been developed by the college for the business and sustainability concentration is as follows: business policy and the environment; environmental science; ethics and the ecology of business; industrial ecology; and organizational change and management for sustainability. Students also are able to develop additional studies which are tailored to their personal and academic goals.
Julie Gedro, associate professor in business, said of student interest, “While we expected there to be general interest for this concentration within the business program, we were delighted that these courses also were appealing to students across academic disciplines.”

Empire State is part of the State University of New York system.
