University of Cambridge Postgraduate Certificate in Sustainable Business



The Postgraduate Certificate in Sustainable Business (PCSB) is run by the University of Cambridge Programme for Sustainability Leadership (www.cpsl.cam.ac.uk). Now in its 17th year, this leading Master’s-level programme is delivered over nine months, with three short (2 – 3 day) workshops. It provides a broad and action-oriented introduction to sustainability in a business context. Participants develop their understanding of the global context within which businesses operate, and explore the need for system-wide change. The focus is on building the confidence and knowledge required to be an effective change agent and, hence, to embed sustainability within an organisation.

PCSB participants are from a wide range of mainstream business functions and also sustainability-related specialist positions.

Each course is built around residential workshops held in Cambridge. The workshops include:
• Lectures by leading academics and practitioners
• Facilitated discussions and group activities
• Face-to-face tutorials to support the completion of three business-relevant assignments
• Peer-to-peer learning amongst a diverse, engaged and cross-sectoral group
• First-hand exposure to some of the University’s world class facilities and traditions

Venues used regularly include Clare College, Madingley Hall and Wolfson College.
