Graduate students at UC Berkeley can pursue certificates in a variety of subjects. Certificate completion is indicated on UC Berkeley transcripts. Haas offers the Certificate in Sustainable Business, the Certificate in Business Analytics, and the Interdisciplinary Graduate Certificate in Real Estate. There are a few other certificates offered by other Graduate Departments on campus.

Michaels Graduate Certificate in Sustainable Business

The certificate in Sustainable Business responds to the growing need to empower new leaders with the capacity to lead the economic and social transition to a climate-resilient, low-carbon, and equitable future. The curriculum exposes students to the underlying complexities in energy and environmental markets and the inherent challenges of building sustainable growth within our current economic systems. Upon completion, students will be better equipped with the necessary frameworks and practical skills to imagine and implement more sustainable business models, management practices, and technologies. Domain-focused classes will allow students to go deeper into specific topics of interest.
