About this course

The role of business in society is expanding. Beyond its financial value, business can create social and environmental value. For example, social enterprises create positive social impact while also remaining financially sustainable. However, business activities are also increasingly impacting the environment, driving adverse global and local environmental changes. The creation of sustainable strategies is concerned with carbon emissions trading and transitions to renewable energy systems.

UQ Business School's research in these areas, as well as its widespread industry involvement, has influenced managers to develop leadership and goals for future social impact and sustainability practice.

Employment opportunities:

Graduates enjoy careers as consultants, managers and advisers in large organisations and private businesses. Graduates work in areas such as sustainability, renewables and clean technology management, energy efficiency, or advise high-impact industries such as the resources and mining sector on social and environmental strategies. Job opportunities also exist in areas such as risk management, as well as in government and international organisations such as the United Nations.
