Master of Studies in Sustainability Leadership


This interdisciplinary Masters is offered in association with the Departments of Architecture, Engineering, Geography, Land Economy and the Judge Business School. These Departments all deliver full-time sustainability-related postgraduate degrees.

It also builds on the success of CPSL’s other programmes, including: The Prince of Wales’s Business and Sustainability Programme – in its 17th year; the Climate Leadership Programme; and the Postgraduate Certificate in Sustainable Business (PCSB) – in its 14th year.

The main components of the Masters are:

• Four week-long residential workshops in Cambridge, usually in September and April of each academic year.

• E-learning via a virtual learning environment between the residential workshops.

• Two individual work-based assignments.

• A group project around an area of mutual relevance.

• An individual research dissertation.

The learning approach is highly interactive and designed to encourage reflection and debate. Participants are supported by a team of expert tutors, directors of studies and supervisors. The speakers, lecturers and facilitators are leading experts and practitioners from academia, business government and civil society.

A key feature of the Programme is the opportunities it provides for: shared-learning from peers; benchmarking against other organisations; and networking with the wide range of contributors.
