The GCNYC Experience

Our programs are focused on teaching students how to create real impact. At GCNYC you’ll get more than a one-off elective about sustainability or social impact. Every course we offer focuses on how key skills can be leveraged to create positive change. We bring these principles to life through theory, management, and practical applications of applied research.

The Thesis Project

The master’s program culminates in an individualized thesis project guided by our expert faculty. Based on GCNYC’s applied research model, the project demonstrates your mastery of the field and can be completed in partnership with a company or organization to develop solutions to sustainability or social impact challenges.
