More and more businesses are working incrementally toward sustainable operations, with the end goal of doing no harm. What distinguishes Marlboro’s MBA program is a commitment to push beyond sustainability—a state of zero impact—to a net positive state whereby organizations prosper, communities thrive, and the planet flourishes anew.
Leaders in sustainability must by definition be agents of change. In Marlboro’s 60-credit, “full-potency” MBA program, you will gain the knowledge and skills to lead with agility and courage, think creatively, and act decisively. You will learn how to apply your personal values, beliefs, attitudes, and consciousness in the context of your work. You will emerge ready to guide an organization from its status quo to a healthy future based on the well-being of the whole. The transformation you experience will enable you to transform the world.
Our innovative curriculum features an integrated, three-part structure based on:
|KNOWING||Building knowledge of sustainability and systems thinking to discern the good of the whole|
|BEING||Developing self-aware leadership, emotional intelligence, a collaborative spirit, and a values-based vision in order to be the change you wish to see in the world|
|DOING||Attaining core MBA skills of management, entrepreneurship, operations, finance, and communication to act on your vision|
In the MBA in Managing for Sustainability program, we foster a learning community where leaders gain the capacity to think holistically, live their values, and invent and build an alternative future in which everyone prospers: people, organizations, and the planet.
