Course description

The Master of Studies in Sustainability Leadership is a part-time, Master’s-level programme delivered by the University of Cambridge Programme for Sustainability Leadership (CPSL) – a specialised Department within the University’s School of Technology. It runs part-time over 2-years in a format designed to accommodate people in full-time employment who need not be based in the UK. This interdisciplinary programme results in the award of a University of Cambridge-accredited Master’s degree and is delivered in association with the Business School and the Departments of Engineering, Land Economy, Geography, and Architecture. The MSt explores critical social, environmental and economic trends, and various leadership responses to these challenges, helping students embed sustainability within core business strategy and business processes. Students gain an insight into leading edge interdisciplinary thinking and research on sustainability, and the programme attracts an exceptional calibre of participants with ample opportunity for peer networking. The programme is designed for senior and mid-career professionals and managers who want to enhance their personal development in the sustainability field. Candidates are able to explore a topic of interest via supervised research, which is presented in a 15,000 word dissertation.
