Online Bachelor’s, Master’s, and Certificate Programs
The online University of Wisconsin Sustainable Management bachelor’s, master’s, and certificate programs were developed with advice from industry experts and are taught by distinguished faculty from across the University of Wisconsin System. You’ll acquire the technical, environmental, and business knowledge you need to enter the field or advance your career in sustainability.
The online learning format offers students a flexible, convenient way to pursue their degree or certificate. Because the coursework in the program is entirely online, you can study and do homework whenever you like, wherever you have an internet connection. Courses have no set meeting times and you never need to come to campus.

You’ll earn your degree or certificate from the University of Wisconsin, one of the largest and most widely respected public higher education systems in the country. And the multi-campus partnership means you’ll learn from expert faculty across the UW System with strong connections to the industry.
