CESR’s Socially Responsible Enterprise (SRE) Certificate

Program Contact

Program Manager



The Center for Ethics and Social Responsibility (CESR) offers the Certificate in Social Responsibility and Ethics (SRE) to undergraduate business students who seek to distinguish themselves in the field of socially responsible business, whether their unique interests lie in environmental sustainability, social entrepreneurship, business ethics or values-driven leadership.

Students who complete the certificate will develop the practical knowledge and marketable experiences that will distinguish them as business professionals who strive to make a positive social impact.

SRE graduates indicated overwhelmingly that their CESR education helped them identify an employer whose culture matched their own values, and 1/3 of our graduates directly credited their SRE Certificate with playing a critical role in securing their job offer.

Still not sure if the SRE Certificate is right for you? Discover what last year’s graduates say about the SRE Certificate.
