Sustainable Business and Policy

University of California, Berkeley

About the Program

The Haas School of Business and Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics Summer Minor in Sustainable Business and Policy will equip students with the essential tools for driving business and social change in the 21st Century. As almost every aspect of our economy and society is deeply impacted by sustainability challenges, it is increasingly crucial to approach these challenges with innovative, interdisciplinary, and creative solutions. This minor will provide students with the skills needed to address these concerns, including understanding business models, data tools, applied microeconomics, entrepreneurship, investment, and sustainability economics.

The program will help students demonstrate their abilities to address complex problems and help open the doors to careers and graduate programs.
