The Chatham University Falk School of Sustainability & Environment Master of Sustainability program, in partnership with Chatham's MBA program, has developed a Sustainability - Dual Degree Program that prepares graduates for sustainability management and leadership positions across all sectors including business, government, and NGOs. 


The  Sustainability - Dual Degree Program from Chatham University includes foundational coursework in both business and sustainability and extends the breadth and depth of students' knowledge bases with advanced work in various aspects of sustainability such as water, agriculture, and ecology as well as business.

The degree requires 57 credits, and is designed to be completed by full time students in two years. An optional first summer is offered for students who require prerequisites or simply want more time to take classes. In the program, students engage in consultation with sustainable businesses, complete individual or group sustainability projects, and apply their knowledge in summer-long professional placements. 

During these engagements, students will work on projects focused on real world challenges encountered by sustainable businesses, and include activities such as creating business plans for sustainability-focused organizations or collaboration on various projects in the scope of sustainability. Through the curriculum and outside learning opportunities, dual degree graduates will be uniquely prepared to champion and support sustainability initiatives in the business world.
