By studying Sustainable Enterprise with Monash online, you'll discover how to leverage sustainability for positive change and make an impact in the world.

Sustainability has become a highly charged, core focus for enterprise and society. We’re faced with a complex and interwoven set of challenges, as we question whether it’s possible to run organisations that prioritise employee wellbeing, community, and the environment, without sacrificing profitability.

You can pivot your career in a new direction towards sustainable practice and leadership in an organisational context with our Master of Sustainable Enterprise.

You’ll have the opportunity to demonstrate a broad knowledge of sustainability challenges faced by enterprises and understand their role in contributing to innovation and entrepreneurial solutions.

We’re actively working to anticipate and respond to the complexity of our constantly changing world. We’ve created 4 new Sustainable Enterprise units within the Master of Enterprise and continue to lead the evolution of emerging disciplines and content.
