Student support and experience

The programme is designed by the University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL), which has over 30 years' experience of designing and delivering leadership programmes on sustainability. The CISL team is responsible for all elements of the programme design, management, administration and oversight of the academic process.

Students are supported by a Director of Studies – a member of the programme team – as well as a dedicated Tutor in the first year of the programme, and an academic Dissertation Supervisor drawn from key departments within the University of Cambridge and from the wider CISL academic network, in the second year of the programme. The programme also features a number of expert contributors from both academia and industry, over the two years.

"It is helpful to have sounding boards with different backgrounds and perspectives, while sharing the basic understanding that the world is changing and we need to play a more active role in shaping the nature of these changes and their impact on us all. I believe that I will be inspired with many more ideas on how to play an influential role in this sector financing the transition to sustainability."
