Biology: Environmental Management
Concordia University's environmental management program will train you to analyze commerce with an eye on sustainability and social responsibility. As the global population increases and consumer demand for goods and services grows, the potential for negative environmental consequences increases. It is imperative that business leaders be environmentally conscious and committed to sustainability, so that future generations are able to enjoy the environment that many of us take for granted today.
How does the program work? First you choose, according to your interests, biology, chemistry, or business as your core, and then enhance it with management, environmental and natural resource courses.
According to Derick Vowels '98, environmental management major,
I put a lot of thought into choosing my major. I decided on the environmental program because I felt this degree would make me more employable after graduation. In addition, I felt like it would give me an opportunity to have a positive influence on society.
I was also an athlete at Concordia. I found that it was often difficult to handle the demands of my course work and commitment to the team. To accommodate this erratic schedule, my professors allowed me to complete labs and tests outside of regular hours when it was necessary.
If you're committed to a new way of combining science and business in the new millennium, the environmental management program is for you. Transform the way things get done and help business "go green."
