Join BGI for a special guest at our Certificate in Sustainable Energy Solutions class.There are few sectors as dynamic and critical to our society as the energy industry. It supports the economy, enables advanced health care, information technologies and makes cheap transportation possible. Yet its complexities create risks that are hardly ever considered or discussed during critical business decision-making processes. This four-quarter, one-year graduate certification series will expose a student to the energy system and examine how energy-related issues weave themselves through the fabric of our society.Schedule*9:30am: Check In10am-Noon: Lecture12:30-1:30pm: Lunch (if paid for)*If you're a prospective student, please consider joining Sustainable Saturday where you'll get a range of programming as our guest, including an option to join the second half of the Energy Solutions lecture.
