Sustainable Organizational Leadership
The Certificate in Sustainable Organizational Leadership at WSU is open to all majors. This interdisciplinary certificate provides value to students by building synergies across two strongly complementary units: the Department of Sociology and the Carson College of Business. Environmental and resource sustainability is an important social problem and an increasingly common issue across for-profit, not-for-profit, and governmental workplaces. Achieving sustainability requires attention to the intersections of three key domains – financial, environmental, and social. This certificate will develop student expertise and skills in these three arenas and the intersections between them, producing leaders who can act to achieve sustainability goals across a diversity of organizational settings.
The Certificate in Sustainable Organizational Leadership requires 15 credits including SOC 332, 340, and MGMT 301, and two electives drawn from: HBM 381 or MGMT 401; MGMT 483, 487; SOC 335, 336, 430, 474.
