In recent years, MBA programs around the world have accelerated the push to teach sustainability. Sustainable MBA programs have proliferated, offering students coursework in everything from resource use to sustainable accounting.
Social issues are a critical part of sustainability, and no social impact may be as important as those affecting diversity, inclusion and marginalization.
Sustainability is an all-encompassing term. In the MBA world, sustainability is commonly referred to as a “green MBA.”
MBAs with a concentration in sustainability are unique in that they focus specifically on the intersection of sustainability and business success and ethics, using the well-trodden framework of a conventional Master of Business Administration to advance sustainability principles.
