Sustainable education booms as environmental industries remain strong

Sustainable management degree and certificate programs have seen a huge increase in students as demand for professionals with green skills grows.


Anaheim, CA– Anaheim University's sustainable business courses, including the online green MBA, and diploma and certificate programs in Sustainable Management have seen a huge increase in students recently as demand for professionals with the skill sets to fill the jobs created in the environmental industries grows.
"Professionals are upgrading their qualifications in this time of uncertainty to improve their job security and to be one step ahead of the throng of other applicants when jobs open up again even in traditional sectors,” says Darrell Nelson, AU international liaison office director.
Environmental industries are now estimated at $550 billion, and Shell has recently forecast that the climate change market in the U.K. will grow to GBP 2.8 billion this year.
"Personally I don't think the recession is an issue at all. Recessions will come and go, but the environmental reality is upon us whether we like it or not," says Blythe Masters, head of global commodities at JP Morgan.
According to Anaheim University, green MBA students are already in demand as sectors such as clean technology are expanding and looking for qualified personnel. In addition, central banks are cutting interest rates to stimulate the economy favoring clean-energy producers, who need to borrow more to build the new infrastructure, but then often run them on "free" natural resources, such as wind, sun and tides. Governments are also responding by creating jobs in sectors such as home energy insulation, or by reforming energy subsidies.
