New Concentration in Sustainability and Clean Energy Management

Rensselaer at Hartford, the Connecticut Energy Efficiency Fund, and Connecticut Light and Power (CL&P, a subsidiary of Northeast Utilities) have partnered to develop and offer a new concentration for graduate management studies: the master of science in management with a concentration in sustainability and clean energy management. This progressive educational opportunity is designed for individuals who want to improve the economic, social, and environmental bottom lines of their businesses through sustainable development and clean energy management.

This initiative is an outgrowth of the Business Sustainability Challenge (BSC) pilot program, supported by the Energy Efficiency Fund in partnership with CL&P. The BSC focuses on educating CL&P business customers on strategies and solutions that help their company operations, supply chain, and, in turn, the state of Connecticut be more sustainable. The master of science in management with a concentration in sustainability and clean energy management curriculum is organized into two four-course graduate certificates, one in sustainability and one in clean energy management. The remaining two core courses complete the requirements for the M.S. in management degree.

Classes will be held every other Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Rensselaer’s Hartford campus. A new cohort will begin on June 4, with applications due by May 14.

For more information and to start the application process, contact Clarence Byers, senior program manager, at (860) 548-2479 or byersc@rpi.edu.
