The specialization in Leadership for Sustainable Organizations uses stakeholder theory, human development, and capabilities principles to enable students to develop realistic ways to put human experience and the practice of engaged collaborative leadership at the center of issues of resilience and regeneration for a viable future. For example, it includes sustainable business practices applicable in multiple economic environments, while bringing a unique focus to the human dimensions of sustainability.

Students learn that leaders committed to fostering sustainable organizations manage the tensions among the diverse individuals, interests, groups, and sectors, and learn how leadership is challenged to design change processes that over time that reverse damaging current trends and lead toward collectively desired sustainable futures.
