As a pioneer in Bard's MBA in Sustainability inaugural class, I appreciate engaging in this unique program. Bard's enduring scholarship and cutting-edge thought leadership in environmental and social sustainability offers the opportunity to co-create a superior course of academic study that truly addresses today's fundamental management challenges.

The Bard MBA in Sustainability is one of a select few graduate programs globally that fully integrates sustainability into a core business curriculum. At Bard, students work in collaborative teams learning how to build businesses and not-for-profit organizations that combine economic, environmental, and social objectives into an integrated bottom line that creates not only healthier businesses, but also a more sustainable world. Graduates of the Bard MBA will transform existing companies, start their own, and pioneer a new paradigm of doing business that meets human needs, protects and restores the Earth's systems, and treats all stakeholders with justice and respect.
