DEVELOPING SUSTAINABILITY INTRAPRENEURS 

While the Certificate is only entering its 2nd year, we have gained the attention of multi-national corporations who are seeking graduates with highly sought after skills in emerging Sustainable Systems, Supply Chain and Environmental Life Cycle Analysis.  We consider that our students will be leading  Sustainability Intrapreneurs  a term developed by Dr. Golden which he defines as  “the person within a organization who takes on the leadership for creating and turning a sustainable systems strategy into a profitable finished product or service offering.”

The Certificate in Sustainable Systems Analysis is intended to prepare you to be a Sustainability Intrapreneur by offering both a theoretical grounding on Sustainable Systems (SS) drawn primarily from system dynamics as well an applied understanding of institutional drivers (industry and governments) for system approaches to sustainability imperatives.

The following are partners with whom student teams from the Certificate in Sustainable Systems Analysis and / or Fellows of the Duke Center for Sustainability & Commerce have partnered.  In addition to those listed below, we are finalizing some very exciting additional corporations for the incoming 2012-2013 cohort:
