The role of a sustainability professional is evolving from a specialist to a sustainability-literate change agent with a key role in setting and delivering an organizational strategy that supports long-term organizational resilience and success.

The Sustainability MSc brings together academics from our School of Water, Energy, and Environment and School of Management to create a holistic, multidisciplinary learning experience. The course is designed in consultation with the industry to equip sustainability professionals and leaders in organizations of all sizes with this critical mix of technical and management skills. It will deepen your knowledge of the theory and practice of organizational sustainability, and help you build the personal competencies you need to lead and manage change towards improved sustainability performance.

On completion of the program, you will be awarded professional recognition as a Registered Environmental Practitioner (REnvP) and Practitioner Member of the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (I.E.M.A.) or Chartered Environmentalist (Full Member of the I.E.M.A.) depending on your level of experience prior to the course.


Who is it for?

The course is suitable for:

sustainability professionals across management levels who are keen to improve/enhance their sustainability skills, knowledge and abilities, and lead their organizations more effectively towards improved sustainability performance,

employees who are new to their sustainability role, whether leading or employed within a team of dedicated experts, who are keen to build their sustainability skills, knowledge and abilities, and apply these in their workplace,

employees in other functional areas (e.g. operations, procurement, HR) for whom sustainability is becoming an increasingly important aspect of their role, and who want to build their knowledge and skills in this area, and be equipped to lead their function to align with their organization's sustainability strategy,

entrepreneurial individuals who are looking to develop their sustainability skills, knowledge, and abilities to grow an existing business in a sustainable way or even start a new business.

Informed by industry

The course has been designed in consultation with industry representatives from across sectors (including retail, banking, consumers goods, utilities, non-profit), academic experts, and the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (I.E.M.A.) to ensure its relevance to sustainability roles across management levels and sectors.

The course faculty combines expertise from Cranfield’s School of Management and the School of Water, Energy, and Environment, supported by a team of external industry speakers, who will bring the latest thinking and practice to the course.
