Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership


The Postgraduate Diploma in Sustainable Business is designed for senior and mid-career managers with at least three years' work experience who wish to delve deeply into leadership responses to key sustainability challenges. The course provides an excellent opportunity for participants to further their own personal development in the field.



We welcome applications from:

  • mainstream business roles from all business functions, including strategy and policy, finance, corporate affairs and communications, research and business/product development, procurement, operations, sales and marketing
  • social/environmental/CSR/sustainability specialists, including consultants
  • those working in the not-for-profit and government sectors that are involved with, or interested in gaining exposure to, sustainability in a business context.


Applicants from outside the UK

We welcome applicants from outside the UK. The part-time course, based around short residential workshops, has been designed to be accessible for participants based throughout the world. The content is internationally relevant, however it should be noted that the programme is developed and delivered by a predominantly UK team.

"When deciding to continue my education in sustainability I chose Cambridge for the reputation of the programme; the global nature of the curriculum, the blended approach of group work, individual study, workshops and the ability to fit it into my schedule as a full time working professional." 

Samantha Veide, Global Director of Corporate Sustainable Solutions, Mars Drinks
