New Master’s Program in Sustainability Management

The news release below landed in our in-basket today. It's the first time we've ever heard of a master's degree program in Sustainability Management, although there may be others.

Stevens Institute of Technology, for you folks in south Jersey or outside the state, is a highly regarded educational institution located in Hoboken, NJ.

The school made its reputation by educating future engineers. Today, Stevens also operates a School of Business, School of Systems Enterprises and College of Arts & Letters.  
This fall, Stevens will welcome the first class of students into its newest graduate program: the Master of Science (M.S.) in Sustainability Management. Offered through the Schaefer School of Engineering & Science (SES), the master's in sustainability management gives green advocates from a wide range of backgrounds the opportunity to innovate for environmental progress.

This new graduate program is for students in science, engineering, architecture, planning, business, social science, communications, law and policy fields who want to be a part of the rapidly-growing cadre of trained sustainability experts and managers. 

Program founder and director Dr. Dibyendu “Dibs” Sarkar believes this approach will serve to bridge the gap between scientific progress on sustainability and social implementation. “One thing that makes us different is that we adhere to students’ basic academic preparation,” Dr. Sarkar commented. “They don’t have to be engineers and we’re not trying to turn everyone into engineers. The whole idea is that we want to put students on the same platform so they can communicate across disciplines. Engineers can communicate their designs to gifted communicators who can translate them for public consumption and impact.” (Read more here)
