Pioneering Environmental MBA Programs in the Bay Area
In the past four years, three environmental MBA programs have been launched in the United States, two of which are in the Bay Area. New College of San Francisco pioneered the concept with its Green MBA, launched in 2001. Presidio World Colleges Presidio School of Management enrolled its first students for its MBA in Sustainable Management in 2003. (For the benefit of curious listeners...the program outside the Bay Area is Bainbridge Graduate Institute in Washington State, which began to offer its MBA in Sustainable Business in 2002.) Unlike traditional MBA programs, in which students take a standard course of study their first year and then have the option of taking individual classes or doing a specialization in environment or sustainability, environmental MBA programs integrate issues of the environment and sustainability from the beginning of the first year. Terra Verdes guests are from New College and the Presidio School of Management.
