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. 100% 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.
The online learning format offers working adults a flexible, convenient way to pursue an advanced degree. 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. At the same time, you will have ready access to success coaches and faculty by phone and email, and you may take advantage of on-campus resources such as career assistance and libraries.
You’ll earn your degree 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 from across the UW System with strong connections to the industry.
You may be eligible for admission if you have:
- bachelor’s degree in any discipline from a regionally or nationally accredited university and a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 3.0. Students with a GPA less than 3.0 may be considered for provisional admission and should contact an enrollment adviser for more information.
Aptitude tests, such as the GMAT or GRE, are not required for admission.
Tuition and Financial Aid
Tuition for the program is a flat fee of $740 per credit whether you live in Wisconsin or out of state, and financial aid is available for students who qualify. Learn more about tuition and financial aid.
The UW Master of Science in Sustainable Management is approved by the University of Wisconsin Board of Regents and fully accredited by the Higher Learning Commission.
Partnership of Five UW Campuses
Although you will take courses taught by faculty from all five partner campuses you will apply to a “home” campus. Your home campus is the institution from which you will receive financial aid (if you qualify), advising, career services, and your diploma. This is an online program, but your degree and transcripts will be identical to those earned by on-campus students.
