The Sustainable Development MBA provides students with essential foundations in sustainable development concepts and methods and gives students a comprehensive understanding of the political, social and policy factors that affect the sustainability of programs and projects.

Beyond learning how to address financial and organizational issues, students gain a thorough understanding of the current state of global development and build the skills to develop innovative, long-term solutions to reducing poverty and hunger, promoting human equality and conserving the environment.

Students in the Sustainable Development MBA program study a rights-based approach to development and have the opportunity to take courses in project planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation. The concentration is ideal for early- to mid-career managers of domestic and international organizations working on poverty alleviation, community development, healthcare, women’s development, biodiversity, conservation, disaster mitigation, small enterprise creation and advocacy.
