Learn to Measure Sustainability

Starting this Fall: Learn to Measure Sustainability

The field of management is being expanded at Columbia University beyond the traditional areas of organization, economics and finance to a new emphasis on the analytic and quantitative methods of sustainability – including green accounting, life cycle analysis and sustainability metrics. The Earth Institute, in partnership with the School of Continuing Education, has launched a new certificate program in Sustainability Analytics. This 12-point graduate certificate, offered at Columbia University’s campus, will focus on key topics in reporting, accounting, metrics and indices, and monitoring procedures. Upon completion of the program, students will possess the knowledge and tools to track sustainability indicators, analyze and interpret data, and report upon the findings to industry, nonprofit and government decision-makers.

The deadline to apply for fall 2012 enrollment is Aug. 1. For information, visit our website or contact Allison Ladue, assistant director, at aladue@ei.columbia.edu.

Learn more about this exciting program by attending an information session on Monday, July 9, 2012, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Columbia University, Morningside Campus, Alfred Lerner Hall
