The Brandeis International Business School recently launched the “Global Green MBA,” a new program designed to incorporate economic and social development, corporate governance, and environmental policy into business studies.
Kicking off in the fall with the course, “Business and Environment” and related presentations and panels, the program will include specialized courses on corporations and communities, corporations and the environment, and a seminar exploring what “green” means in different contexts, according to a press release from the school. Students in this program will also participate in a field project that will have them using financial and business skills picked up in core MBA courses.
"Social and environmental challenges do not stop at national borders and solutions rely on international cooperation," says Bruce R. Magid, dean of Brandeis International Business School, according to the press release. "Our students will explore how businesses can differentiate themselves as they address pressing issues such as global warming and the development of clean technologies."
