UW Sustainable Management online certificate programs are an excellent introduction to sustainable practices. We offer two 12-credit certificate programs: Sustainable Management Science and Sustainable Enterprise Management.
4 Courses. 12 Credits. 100% Online.
Each certificate consists of four courses (3 credits each) from the Bachelor of Science in Sustainable Management program.
