UC San Diego Offers Innovative Executive Development Program Focused on Climate Change and Business
In response to the increasing interest in climate change, Scripps Institution of Oceanography has partnered with the Rady School of Management to present the second installment in an executive development series teaching business leaders basic science behind climate change, empowering them to compute the return on investment (ROI) for going green.
“By combining the management expertise here at Rady, with the science knowledge at Scripps, this program capitalizes on the strengths of both,” said Rady School
Climate change has become a central variable for many of today’s businesses. Senior executives, entrepreneurs and investors review risk and reward metrics in a market driven by climate change issues. Issues include evolving technologies, alternative energy solutions, sustainability initiatives, corporate branding opportunities and marketing strategies, as well as innovative investment portfolios. Beyond this, there is a new breed of executives focused on “greening” their corporate environment.
“We’ve witnessed a convergence between scientists and business people who are now working together to address the world’s environmental issues,” said Scripps Director
Program participants will achieve basic understanding of climate change, learn to discuss climate change in social and professional conversations and formulate corporate or investor action plans.
The Rady School of Management at UC San Diego educates global leaders for innovation-driven organizations. A professional school within one of the top-ranked institutions in the U.S. for higher education and research, the Rady School offers a Full-Time MBA program, a FlexMBA program for working professionals, a Ph.D. program and undergraduate and executive education courses.
