Society is recognizing the importance of sustainability and new opportunities in the area abound. MUM’s MBA in Sustainable Business program will train you how to create a profitable business that offers life-sustaining products and services while helping you to grow into the best person you can be.
In our MBA in Sustainable Business program, you will:
MUM embraces the vision that business can be “green both ways,” meaning that a business can make money while also interacting in harmony with nature.
As a student, you’ll study real-world examples of green business and “natural capitalism” — often referred to as “the next industrial revolution.”
At MUM, classes follow a block system: meaning that our students take one full-time course a month instead of balancing multiple classes, homework assignments, and exams.
In this system, you’ll have the opportunity to dive deep into the knowledge without distraction and learn without the stress typical of an MBA program.
Elements of sustainability that you’ll study in our programs include:
All of our students and faculty practice the Transcendental Meditation technique daily. This technique has been scientifically proven to lower stress, enhance mental clarity, and support overall health.
In addition to meditating, you’ll be living a healthy, low-stress lifestyle: single rooms, organic vegetarian meals, and an ideal routine are standard for all of our on-campus students.
At MUM, you’ll be surrounded by fellow entrepreneurs, thinkers, and influencers who share your vision of making the world a better place. MUM’s faculty and staff are also committed to supporting your success as a professional and as a person.
In addition, the town of Fairfield has been named the entrepreneurial capital of Iowa, with Fairfield businesses holding one-third of the state’s total venture capital. Fairfield’s supportive community is an ideal place to watch your own business grow with the help of other creative entrepreneurs.
