Graziadio School launches Certificate in Socially, Environmentally, and Ethically Responsible Business Practice

Pepperdine University’s Graziadio School of Business and Management announces the launch of its new Certificate in Socially, Environmentally, and Ethically Responsible (SEER) Business Practice.  Today, business leaders know that being a responsible corporate citizen is not optional. They need leaders who understand the complexities of issues such as sustainability, corporate social responsibility, and ethics – and how these tie into producing a superior product that generates financial growth.

Pepperdine’s SEER certificate allows students, with any academic concentration, to complement their MBA with courses and activities that will prepare them to:

1. Incorporate their own values and ethics into a successful career in 21st-century business

2. Apply SEER values to companies large or small, across a diverse range of industries

3. Lead the next wave of great organizations

Students working towards SEER certification will, (a) complete four elective courses within the SEER curriculum, including the SEER capstone course taught by lead faculty Michael Crooke, (b) complete at least one extracurricular SEER service project, and (c) join and be an active member of Pepperdine’s Net Impact chapter

“After serving as president and CEO of Patagonia, Inc. from 1999 – 2005 and as CEO at Revolution Living from 2005-2007, I learned that it is not only possible – but vital – for businesses to operate in a socially responsible manner while still thriving fiscally.”   Michael Crooke, Lead Faculty, SEER Program
