Fostering a community of change makers

Yale’s signature Joint Degree program offers a three-year, dual master’s degree in business administration and environmental management or forestry. The Center for Business and the Environment serves as the platform for this internationally recognized program and a hub for all of its activities.

As a joint-degree student, you will be able to take advantage of opportunities across one of the world’s most respected universities, tailoring your education to fit a personal learning journey. And with three years available, you will be able to become both intimately familiar with chosen topic areas and well-versed in what it takes to translate this knowledge into concrete and effective action.

Academic coursework is enriched by professional opportunities like school-year externships and the summer internship program. The former is a great way to build hard skills while in a classroom setting. The latter gives students two chances to try out radically different career paths and expand professional networks.

While the work of sustainability professionals is often described as lonely, the joint-degree program challenges this notion—a lodestone for 55 or 60 likeminded peers who will push you to articulate and refine the work that you’ve set out to do. Graduates from the joint-degree program remain a close-knit community of leaders characterized by a shared ethos of change.

We hope you’ll join us in our effort to redefine leadership for future generations. We encourage prospective student to read more about admissions at the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies and the School of Management, and to follow us on social media for upcoming deadlines and opportunities.
