Shifting global systems to a sustainable future

Our executive education portfolio is rapidly expanding and is underpinned by the Smith Schools vision of enabling a net-zero emissions future supported by a sustainable global economic and financial system - a healthy planet and a more prosperous, fairer world.  

Programmes are centred on the multi-disciplinary research centres of the School, which focus on finance, law, enterprise and economics and specifically how these clusters relate to the environment. We aim to provide leaders and organisations with actions for implementation, the confidence to drive change, opportunities to reflect, a safe space for learning, and a cross-pollination of ideas with their peers.
