Florida Tech is an Ideal Environmental Studies College
There was a time when eco-friendly companies were few and far between. Environmental consciousness has caused major corporations to integrate sustainability measures into their organizational mission. To help realize this mission, companies seek out informed business professionals who have an inclination toward environmental stewardship and can effectively manage the issues in sustainability. As a business and environmental studies college, Florida Tech offers a competitive program that is ideal for someone who wants to lead in an increasingly greener world.
Get First Hand Experience and Intensive Faculty Interaction
One reason why students choose the Nathan M. Bisk College of Business at Florida Tech as their business and environmental studies college is because of personalized support by faculty and staff. Students benefit from small class sizes, something not often found in larger institutions, resulting in intensive interaction with faculty mentors.
As an environmental studies college, Florida Tech supports your desire for a socially responsible education. At Florida Tech you will:
- Be mentored by experienced faculty in the Nathan M. Bisk College of Business and Environmental Management program, some of whom have participated in the Florida-Hungary Environmental Studies program, a partnership between the Florida Tech and Budapest University of Technology and Economics, which focuses on faculty development and research in environmental studies
- Have an option to minor in sustainability and collaborate with Facilities Management to increase the number of LEED-certified buildings on campus
- Have easy access to local companies that have adopted green initiatives such as Harris Corporation, a 2011 Governor's Sustainability Award recipient
- Join any of the more than 100 campus clubs such as the Student Organization of Sustainability Action (SOSA), one of the few organizations that is open to all majors and provides students with an opportunity to take on sustainability activities through volunteerism and student group projects
Incorporate Social Responsibility in Theory and Practice
Florida Tech prepares students by including corporate social responsibility, both in theory and practice, in our program. Florida Tech's Sustainability Policy and Plan reflects its commitment towards creating a greener campus. This environmental studies college engages in diverse sustainable initiatives from single-stream recycling to helping students donate unwanted items to decrease landfill waste. Students can also participate in beach cleanups just minutes away from campus.
