Boston University's Metropolitan College offers most of BU's continuing education programs, including the Graduate Certificate in Applied Sustainability.

Additionally, Boston University’s Center for Professional Education has offered a Certificate in Real Estate Sustainability since April 2010. The program explores core disciplines within the sustainability field while providing building owners and space occupiers the skills necessary to create and implement sustainability practices throughout their organization, operations, and facilities.
