Does the institution offer at least one sustainability-focused major, degree program, or the equivalent for graduate students (I.e. an interdisciplinary academic program that concentrates on sustainability as an integrated concept)?:
Yes

Name of the sustainability-focused graduate-level degree program:
Southwire Sustainable Business Honors Program - MBA

A brief description of the graduate-level degree program:

Participants complete a BBA in Economics, Finance, Management, Marketing, or Real Estate, a Masters of Business Administration, and a certificate of Sustainability in only four years. The program is interdisciplinary in that it requires numerous sustainability courses from across colleges in order to make the degree one that has a sustainability focus. This is a degree program that must be started as an undergrad, and hence counts as an undergrad program.

"Businesses face a fluid and changing landscape, one shaped by a variety of factors from shifting market conditions to evolving tastes and technologies to developing customer needs. That’s nothing new. But, today’s companies must ensure they meet these challenges in a sustainable manner that is focused not just on profit, but also on social, environmental and ethical responsibility."
