Sustainable Business Management
The study of environmental sustainability examines the balance between our society's ability to meet current needs while minimizing our environmental impact for future generations. At Lycoming, students have the unique opportunity not only to research the concepts of sustainability, but also to work with experienced faculty and professionals to develop and apply solutions.
Students in the Sustainable Business Management Track, or minoring in environmental sustainability, will take courses from a variety of academic departments, including business, biology, economics, political science, philosophy, and psychology.
To compliment their classroom experience, students are encouraged to complete a practicum or internship in the field of environmental sustainability. This experience will often relate to the students' academic major, allowing that student to apply their knowledge of sustainability to their chosen field.
In addition to the core courses, students must successfully complete the following courses to finish the Sustainable Business Management Track:
- Sustainable Business Management (BUS 225)
- Three courses from:
**NOTE: Only one of these three can be from BUS 439, BUS 470-479 and ECON 349 (Sustainable Business Management or related field)
