Established in 2003 through the generosity of Sam Johnson, Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management’s Center for Sustainable Global Enterprise is a world-class academic institution producing and disseminating relevant knowledge for managers seeking innovative, profitable business opportunities which address global sustainability challenges and help transform the impacts of private enterprise on the world.

The Center frames global sustainability challenges as business opportunities, and works with firms to specify innovative, entrepreneurial, and new business alternatives they can implement in the marketplace. Our programs include those focused on market and enterprise creation (particularly in low income communities), clean technology commercialization and innovation, and finance + sustainability.
