Businesses today face increasing pressure to behave ethically, leading to a greater demand for individuals with expertise around integrating sustainability and equity into business strategy. Our unique joint graduate certificate in global business and corporate social responsibility offers a foundation of knowledge in concepts of inclusivity and business ethics so that graduates are prepared for careers in responsible business.

The curriculum provides a clear understanding of the complexity of the global business environment and best practices to advance social responsibility efforts. Those who complete the certificate often find strategy positions in government, private and non-profit sectors.
