Environmental Management Certificate

Become the Eco-Friendly Leader Your Company Needs

As more companies weave environmental concerns into their best practices, there is an increased demand for employees able to lead such efforts. With an Environmental Management Certificate from the College of Business at the University of Houston-Clear Lake, you can improve your status at your current job or set the groundwork for a new role with a new company.

This certificate gives working professionals who already have an undergraduate degree the opportunity to gain knowledge in the environmental field without the committing to a full degree program. Depending upon your prior coursework, you will complete either 4 or 5 courses (12 to 15 graduate credit hours).

If you already work in the environmental profession with science or engineering background, this course of study can enhance your knowledge and qualifications and forward your career. For those with a business background, this certificate can be tailored to provide a better understanding of sustainability practices and managing environmental risks. It will also shape your appreciation for how legal and business frameworks are applied to STEM skills to make important decisions about environmental issues.
