*With the Liquid Learning methodology, participants can choose to join the class either face-to-face, or remotely/online.

The Sustainability: Your competitive advantage program allows participants to create new opportunities for their businesses through environmental, social and governance (ESG) frameworks. They will study specific cases that demonstrate how companies can do well by doing good; learn and apply the frameworks to their own organizations and measure the impact; and explore the new type of leadership and governance required to drive these changes.

The program is furthermore a hands-on learning experience where participants will engage with other business leaders, top faculty, and renowned panelists in applied debate and workshops.
