2 COURSES (6 CREDITS)

The economics requirement reflects the fact that sustainability managers must understand the financial costs and benefits of sustainability practice. After completing this requirement, students will have a good understanding of what sustainability means from an economic perspective, both in the traditional and broader socioeconomic sense. The quantitative analysis requirement gives students the necessary tools to utilize data samples when analyzing a larger issue, allowing them to more efficiently determine the best way to proceed on a particular project.
Some courses can be used to fulfill either the Economics requirement or the Quantitative Analysis requirement. Students should consult the course registration materials or their faculty advisor for more details.
