Our Sustainable MBA program, the first 100% online Sustainable MBA in the nation, is designed to teach students how to achieve economic objectives while addressing the needs of the environment, employees, communities, and other stakeholders. The program reflects the growing trend among successful companies to focus on the triple bottom line, seeking competitive advantages through practices that are succeed economically, are socially responsible, and environmentally sound. Students will make connections between their own organization’s financial, social and environmental performance and we encourage students to apply their learning to their own careers.

The program provides students with a solid foundation in the core areas of business administration, including: finance, accounting, marketing, organizational leadership, business law, operations, quantitative analysis, and ethics. But what makes our Sustainable MBA truly unique is that the principles of sustainable business are woven through every course and taught by committed faculty who possess real-world sustainable business experience. Our faculty members have highly regarded professional backgrounds and they are committed to helping students understand today’s green business issues and challenges.

We’re proven educators of sustainability in campus and online learning environments.

Our online Sustainable MBA program consists of 37 credits. Each 3-credit course is just six weeks in length, followed by a one-week break before the start of the next course. We cap each course at 20 students, but our typical class size is 10-18 students: perfect for individualized attention and quality group discussion.
