This international, cross-cultural and inter-generational program will give you the opportunity to collaborate with people from multiple backgrounds, work directly at the UN through the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) and apply systemic thinking to business and organizational solutions. You will experience turning environmental goals into functional solutions through practical projects and strategies. When you complete your Master's, you will be prepared to apply new skills and perspectives to any organizational context, and you will be primed to influence the hearts and minds of new generations toward a green economy.
Throughout the program, experienced faculty, industry experts and innovative thinkers with an international profile will conduct workshops and other learning experiences with the MSIM cohort. These change-makers will help you to widen your perspective and develop skills that you will take forward in your career as a responsible leader committed to climate action.

What Students Say
The people that attend the university are my favorite thing about Franklin. A student here is able to meet several different types of people from all over the globe. This is true about other universities as well, but Franklin offers an intimacy factor like no other school.Pierre Garcia '15
