Harvard Extension Offers Online Corporate Sustainability Course

The Harvard University Extension School is offering an open enrollment course on corporate sustainability strategy via distance learning.

The course is being taught by Harvard adjunct lecturer on environmental science and GreenBiz.com guest writer Robert B. Pojasek and Suzanne Farver, founder and principal of GreenFix LLC.

Pojasek, an internationally recognized authority on business sustainability and process improvement, has been the instructor of the popular Harvard Extension e-learning course, "Strategies for Environmental Management: Path to Sustainable Development," a class that typically has drawn about 100 students from more than a dozen countries.

Pojasek anticipates that as many 130 students from more than 20 countries will participate in the corporate sustainability strategy course that begins at the end of the month.

Using a case method approach, Pojasek and Farver will lead the class in exploring sustainability from a corporate perspective, focusing on the global marketplace. More information about the course is available on the home page for the class and on its syllabus page.

Registration is open until the course starts on August 30; information is available at www.extension.harvard.edu/register/

Pojasek welcomes questions about the course and can be reached by email.
