About this course:

Are you ready to launch your own sustainability consulting practice or take your existing practice to the next level? Do you dream about starting a social venture and developing the business plan? Do you want to go to graduate school, secure an internship, or find out if consulting is really for you? Is your goal to successfully change careers and transition into a new position in a company or other organization with a focus on sustainability? This capstone is designed to help you take the work you have done so far in the Sustainability Certificate Program to the next level and launch the next chapter of your professional life. In this unique hands-on course, you work closely with the instructor in a small class (capped at a maximum of 10 students) and actively create the blueprint and foundation for your life and career post certificate. This course is designed for self-starters.
50 percent of the program requirements (thus, three of the five courses) must be completed before taking the capstone course.
