The programs represent two of the three pilot certificate initiatives campus-wide that have received support from the Yale Poorvu Center for Teaching and Learning
. The third, an 18-week program created by the Yale School of Public Health, shares tools on the health impacts of climate change. The CBEY program is jointly offered by the Yale School of Management (SOM). In addition, SOM’s Executive Education program has pioneered new flexible online learning opportuntities in a variety of key areas, including online programs that help professionals foster diversity and inclusion and online tools that help women make the leap to executive leadership.
“These online certificate programs will help equip practitioners and decision-makers around the world with the knowledge and skills needed to be effective leaders,” said F&ES Dean Indy Burke
. “We’re excited that F&ES is at the center of this campus-wide initiative that is putting forward our world-class community of professors and researchers to advance transformative change.”

The “Tropical Forest Landscapes” program — which is aimed for professionals working on forest conservation or restoration projects in the tropical world — builds on the School’s and ELTI’s extensive training experience and networks throughout the tropical world.
“As competing land use practices escalate in tropical forest landscapes, it is imperative that people who manage and influence these regions are equipped with the knowledge and skillsets needed to support these vital functions and services into the future,” said Eva Garen
, director of ELTI. “Time is of the essence, as tropical forests continue to be deforested and degraded at alarming rates.”
