A sustainable future requires leaders who are able to integrate sustainability into existing institutions and new enterprises. A particular knowledge base and skill set is required to drive this kind of transformational change. Because sustainability is a relatively new field of study, professionals who are interested in this emerging field have often migrated into sustainability roles without formal training and education in sustainability practice. Today's sustainability professionals may have extensive experience and academic training in a particular area – such as engineering, accounting, operations or communications – yet lack the sustainability skills and knowledge to advance their work and their careers.
The Master of Sustainability Leadership program will equip graduates to drive high-impact transformative sustainability results for their companies, organizations, communities and their own careers. The curriculum is organized around four themes that prepare graduates to lead organizational change: leadership for sustainability; sustainability and strategy; communications and change management; and global context of sustainability.
The MSL program allows students to include electives related to their specific area of interest – from green energy, to urban planning, law, nonprofit organization, military and more. Work with the School of Sustainability to build a focus area best suited to your future plans. Offered through ASU’s School of Sustainability, the MSL features a powerful curriculum backed by the extensive knowledge base of the Julie Ann Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability at ASU. MSL teaching faculty are recruited from among the finest minds and practitioners in sustainability science, business, governance and mission-driven organizations, offering a perspective available nowhere else.
All students are required to meet general university admission requirements.
Some programs may have additional requirements for admission.
