  • Sustainable Human Resources — making work life sustainable through employee health and wellness, improved supervisory practices, and enlightened management systems
  • Sustainable Technologies — advanced knowledge and experience with renewable energy, energy efficiency, organic agriculture, sustainable waste systems, and sustainable building methods
  • Sustainable Process Improvement — reducing inefficiency and waste through quality management and implementation of “lean” methods

Two-Semester or Three-Semester Program
Students with a bachelor’s degree in business may be able to complete the MBA in Sustainable Business in as little as one year. For details, see the admission requirements.
Sustainable Entrepreneurship
As more and more people recognize the importance of sustainability, new opportunities abound, but an entrepreneurial approach is necessary to recognize and implement them. We offer a full range of courses to train students to create new businesses with life-sustaining products and services.
Green Business and Natural Capitalism
We embrace the vision that business can be “green both ways” — operating in harmony with nature, and making money. Each of our entrepreneurial business courses teaches principles and examples of green business and natural capitalism.

Students may earn up to 12 units of credit for internships. Learn more about the Sustainable Business Specialization Internship Opportunities.
