Cornell Launches Environmental Impact Finance Program
The Center for Sustainable Global Enterprise at the Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management at Cornell University, in collaboration with the Cornell Institute of Public Affairs (CIPA), announces the launch of its fellows program in Environmental Finance & Impact Investing (EFII). This is the first program of its kind to be jointly offered by any graduate school of business and graduate program in public affairs.
Through a series of courses, coupled with applied projects, EFII fellows will be trained to invest in, manage, or regulate businesses or projects seeking financial, environmental, and/or social goals.
Business Excellence Across and Between Colleges
With leadership across five colleges and schools, the university is building upon five distinctive foundations to strengthen undergraduate and graduate programs in the business and management sciences and encourage more cross-unit research and teaching.
Our top-level programs in finance—including banking and asset management, marketing, real estate, labor economics, sustainable global business, entrepreneurship, hospitality, health care, and human resources—can be found at the Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management at Cornell University, the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, the School of Hotel Administration, the College of Human Ecology, and the ILR School.
Cornell Strengthens Strategic, Cross-College Connections
Strategic coordination of business and management sciences at Cornell will solidify the university's reputation as a place that attracts the most creative, productive, and diverse scholars in the field to study, teach, learn, and conduct research. Our goals are to:
- Secure worldwide recognition as a top university in the business and management sciences at both the graduate and undergraduate levels
- Strengthen our energized and collaborative academic community—comprised of faculty, researchers, visiting scholars, and retired practitioners—involved in outstanding research, scholarship, and teaching across the university
- Continue to enroll gifted and engaged undergraduate and graduate students who come to Cornell to learn from and participate in research with the world's best scholars.
Greater university-wide coordination of the business and management sciences will allow each of the participating colleges and schools to foster their own unique academic strengths and also benefit from increased cross-unit collaboration. Our objectives are to:
- Cultivate pockets of academic excellence
- Encourage cross-unit teaching and research
- Improve the scholarly and research opportunities available to students
Support will ensure that academic excellence in the business and management sciences continues to thrive. It will allow each of the colleges and schools to strengthen their top programs, build a world-class faculty, fund scholarships and fellowships that attract the best students, and develop programs that will encourage cross-unit collaboration and coordination.
