MSSM Capstone: Students Present Innovative Solutions to Clients’ Challenges

On Tuesday, April 30, students in the Master of Science in Sustainability Management program presented their final Capstone Workshop presentations for fellow students, program faculty, and colleagues at Rennert Hall at Columbia University.
