Sustainable Enterprise Becomes Full MBA Concentration


The Ackerman Center for Excellence in Sustainability (ACES) expands our 20+ years of sustainability coursework for MBA students as Sustainable Enterprise becomes a full concentration.


ACES Supports Growing Undergraduate Interest in Sustainability


As students return to Chapel Hill for the 2022-23 academic year, the ACES team (faculty, staff and our amazing summer interns) has been hard at work planning so that we can support the growing interest of Carolina’s undergraduates in sustainable business.


ACES Events: Save the Dates


We are beyond excited for the return to in-person events this academic year. Review our schedule of events and save the dates for those that you would like to attend, perhaps as speaker or judge to lend your expertise in sustainability to our current students.


What is Blended Finance?


LIFT challenges undergraduate and graduate student teams to create blended finance and impact investing strategies for sustainability solutions that will drive social equity and economic mobility. But what is blended finance? Take a moment to better understand this topic by reviewing the resources created by our ACES interns. We will continue to add new resources created by our interns to our website over the coming weeks.
