The Master of Sustainability Leadership (MSL) degree at Arizona State University will prepare professionals to advance social and environmental responsibility. The program teaches organizational leadership skills through the lens of sustainability. This fully online program equips graduates to drive high-impact global sustainable results for their companies, organizations, and communities through their own careers. Graduates will be prepared to advance sustainability practices and strategically communicate sustainability as the gold standard for best institutional practices

Derived from the Executive Master of Sustainability Leadership program, this program’s curriculum is built around four themes:

  • leadership,
  • communication,
  • strategy,
  • and global context.

Designed and led by a team of sustainability professors, experts and professionals, the core courses are interwoven and build upon one another through the theme areas, combining applied and academic bodies of knowledge.
