Michigan Ross Announces New Sustainability Education for Corporate Boards

The seven-week program trains board members to make the sustainable business decisions of tomorrow

The University of Michigan’s top-ranked Ross School of Business is launching a new executive education certificate program centered on sustainability issues faced by corporate board members.

The Building Board Expertise on Sustainability program is a strategic partnership with Ceres, a Boston-based nonprofit dedicated to reducing the financial impacts of the climate crisis with equitable market-based and policy solutions. Program participants will gain in-depth knowledge about the risks and opportunities of climate and other sustainability issues that impact their own operations and supply chains as well as the broader capital markets.

In seven weekly course modules, the online program will combine both live and asynchronous learning delivered through Ross Business School’s Corp U learning platform.

The program will “equip board members with the necessary tools and expertise to effectively and proactively address sustainability objectives at the corporate level,” Izak Duenyas, associate dean for Executive Programs at Michigan Ross, said in a press release.

The program begins on September 18, 2023, and registration is now open. For program details, click here.
