The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania is the most recent business school to go green, joining more than 10 other U.S. schools including Brandeis that have sustainable enterprise programs, which are essentially interdisciplinary programs between the B-school and environmental studies.
Penn students will now be able to earn a dual MBA-master of environmental studies degree in three years or less, according to an article on greenbiz.com. The program will prepare its participants for global leadership roles through a curriculum of three semesters in Wharton and two semesters in the School of Arts and Science’s College of Liberal and Professional Studies – the body that oversees the environmental studies portion.
Is your university doing anything to go green – whether it’s through green buildings, new courses, or other changes? Or do you wish your university would do more? Feel free to sound off here…
