[+]

Justificación Con la Declaración de Río de Janeiro (1992), la Cumbre del Milenio de las Naciones Unidas (2000) y la Cumbre de la Tierra de Johannesburgo (2002), los países son conscientes que la protección del medio ambiente es una responsabilidad conjunta, que implica una relación entre lo público y lo privado. Para estar a la altura de este compromiso, las empresas hablan ahora de Gestión Ambiental Responsable, en la que incluyen sus principios y valores corporativos al interior y exterior de sus organizaciones, contribuyendo de manera voluntaria al mejoramiento social, ambiental y económico, que implica ir más allá del cumplimiento normativo obligatorio y que contribuye a generar una posición competitiva en el mercado. Este nuevo reto en Gestión Ambiental exige contar con profesionales preparados para participar activamente en un nuevo campo de juego en el que la creatividad y la innovación tienen un papel importante para la toma de decisiones estratégicas. En este contexto, cabe anotar que parte de la impronta de la Universidad de América es preparar profesionales y cualificar a los mismos en sintonía con las demandas del sector productivo. Por esta razón, mantiene contacto permanente con el mundo empresarial para identificar las necesidades de formación y las competencias que exige el mundo globalizado, constituyéndose así la creación del programa de MAESTRÍA EN GESTIÓN AMBIENTAL PARA LA COMPETITIVIDAD en la respuesta a los requerimientos expresados por empresarios y gerentes, donde inquietudes como falta de apoyo y falta de conocimiento técnico, científico, económico y social de los profesionales, han...
