The USC Wrigley Institute for Environment and Sustainability (WIES) has launched its first standalone graduate program, a Master of Sustainability Management (MSM) degree. The program is offered through USC Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences and USC Online, the University of Southern California’s industry-leading graduate education platform tailored to the needs of full-time workers.
“Most businesses have moved away from thinking about sustainability as a nice-to-have and embraced the fact that it’s essential to long-term competitiveness and profitability,” said Dr. Joe Árvai, Director of the Wrigley Institute for Environment and Sustainability. “But these businesses are struggling to find talented employees with advanced training in sustainability to fill key roles. The Wrigley Institute for Environment and Sustainability’s Master of Sustainability Management was designed to address that challenge.”
