More than ever before, major
companies and entrepreneurial ventures are seeking competitive
advantage and success by embracing sustainability — social and
environmental responsibility — as a core business strategy. Farsighted
leaders recognize that this new way of doing business requires skills in
sustainable management including social entrepreneurialism,
eco-efficiency, inter-disciplinary problem solving and a triple bottom
line approach of economics, environment and society.
Make your degree a green MBA by adding the Managing for
Sustainability specialization and learn what businesses are facing in a
world where resources are scarce, social safety nets are declining, and
customers and commentators are concerned about a company's investment
in corporate responsibility.
There are alternative ways to reduce the negative impact of economic activities through:
- Sustainable finance and accounting
- Corporate social responsibility
- Social entrepreneurship
- Green marketing
- Carbon and climate management
Examine the role of business in fostering the long-term health and viability of communities, the environment and the company. View a Sustainability Specialization brochure
