A brief description of the certificate program(s), including the year the program was created:

Regardless of what area of emphasis a student's degree program may be, it is important to develop an awareness of the importance of sustainable practices in business activities and community affairs. Our global future rests on creating a citizenry that is aware of the need for economic, environmental and social responsibility. This is critical for our world economy.

The Certificate in Environmental Sustainability and Business consists of 16 credits at the upper level (300 and 400 numbered courses), including an intensive business internship or co-op experience. Interns work in a business, nonprofit, or government setting that involves interdisciplinary problem solving within an environmental sustainability context. Internships will be set up and coordinated by EMBI. It is the internship/co-op experience that ensures our EMBI certificate is not just "one more certificate" that carries little meaning to employers.
