SPL (School of Public Leadership)
Welcome to Stellenbosch University

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Advanced Diploma in Sustainable Development

The deepening interconnected global crises we face require creative and bold solutions that are guided by ethical decision-making and regenerative leadership. In these times of great upheaval, tension, and change (both positive and negative), there is a growing need for entrepreneurial minds that can imagine and create just, sustainable futures.

The Advanced Diploma in Sustainable Development has been designed in response to the Code for Responsible Investing in South Africa (CRISA), the emergence of Impact Investment and South Africa’s commitment to transition to a green economy.

Develop your ability to think critically, collaborate meaningfully and innovate with sustainability in mind. Whether you want to start your own enterprise, add value as an employee or act as a consultant for businesses, this programme will help you gain the necessary skills to align business ideas with CRISA principles and meet the requirements of impact investors.
