What will I learn?

Achieve business goals whilst preserving the planet

With environmental pollution affecting health and the extinction of species following deforestation and water shortages, organisations are challenged with how they can embrace sustainable business models and achieve their goals. As a result, business leaders with strong environmental sustainability backgrounds are in high demand. USQ’s Graduate Certificate in Business (Sustainable Business) will enable you to explore a variety of sustainable business practices, and learn about environmental policy, biodiversity, conservation and sustainable economies.

Within this specialisation, you will gain a greater understanding of environmental topics such as climate change, pollution and natural resources and their relation to effective business practices.

Career outcomes

Your knowledge of sustainable business practices will help you influence the future of sustainable business in areas such as accounting, finance, management or law.

Further study

After completing the Graduate Certificate of Business (Sustainable Business), you have the option to take the credit from your studies and go on to complete the Graduate Diploma of Business, Master of Business Administration (Sustainable Business) or Master of Business and Innovation (Sustainable Business).
