Postgraduate Certificate in Sustainable Business (PCSB)

Applications for the Postgraduate Certificate in Sustainable Business for 2017 will open in September. Please the team to express your interest or for enquiries about our other graduate programmes.


Leading organisations are embedding sustainability into their core business; mitigating risks, increasing resilience and enhancing value in the short and long term.

The 9-month, part-time Postgraduate Certificate in Sustainable Business (PCSB) equips senior and mid-career professionals and managers with the relevant skillsets to integrate sustainability thinking into business actions. Accredited by the University of Cambridge, the Master’s-level programme will encompass and go beyond themes such as system pressures and trends, sustainability concepts and business and the economy.  

Widely regarded as one of the leading Master’s-level programmes internationally

For two decades, PCSB has provided academic qualifications to individuals seeking to enhance their ability to lead and influence change for sustainability, whilst also gaining an academic award. Renowned for attracting strong, international professionals, predominantly from business, the programme also offers PCSB alumni world-class peer networking opportunities. We recently surveyed our PCSB alumni and, based on over 60 responses, here are some of their insights into the value of the programme.

Delivering business impact through interdisciplinary learning

The strength of the programme lies in combination of access to Cambridge sustainability research and extensive University resources, with an emphasis on collaborative learning and real-life application to business contexts. Supported by a team of expert tutors, students will apply their learning to mainstream business practice and develop the skills to drive organisational change towards sustainable and flexible business.
