As of academic year 2023-2024, the BEES concentration has been replaced by a specialization in the Environmental, Social and Governance Factors for Business (ESGB) concentration.
The Business, Energy, Environment, and Sustainability concentration (formerly environmental policy and management) examines the relationship between business and the natural environment, including human health and safety as well as addressing a range of policy issues. This concentration provides an in-depth foundation for those interested in pursuing careers in the growing environmental sector of the economy, whether in private business, government, or environmental consulting. It takes an interdisciplinary approach, drawing on faculty and courses from several Wharton departments.
Students are encouraged to pursue additional coursework on environmental and technological risks in parallel with the Wharton program through the School of Arts and Sciences and the School of Engineering and Applied Science.
