Lead the way to a more sustainable future
Designed for working adults with real-world experience, the online UW Master of Science in Sustainable Management will strengthen and expand your knowledge of sustainability and environmental issues, preparing you for high-level leadership positions at your current organization or at top companies around the world.
12 courses, 34 credits, online
Through a core curriculum, specialty track courses, and a capstone experience, this graduate program covers topics including the relationship of natural, social, and economic environments; effective communication techniques; waste management; law and ethics of sustainability; sustainable design of products and communities; corporate social responsibility; leadership in sustainable organizations; and supply chain management.
All courses are developed and taught by distinguished faculty from each of the five partnering campuses—UW-Green Bay, UW-Oshkosh, UW-Parkside, UW-Stout, and UW Superior—bringing you diverse expertise from some of the top experts in the state.
If you have a bachelor’s degree from a regionally or nationally accredited university and a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.0, you may apply directly to the program. Students with a GPA of less than 3.0 may be considered for provisional admission but should speak with an adviser.

Tuition for the 2015/16 academic year is a flat fee of $675 per credit ($22,950 total for 34 credits) whether you live in Wisconsin or out of state. Financial aid, including scholarships, is available for students who qualify.
