Business "as usual" no longer applies in a world in which we need to vastly rethink how we use resources, maximize our environment, and treat our human capital. With this, Bard's unique MBA in Sustainability is on point—providing foundational MBA learning, with sustainability embedded at all levels. It's a necessary focus for business leaders to understand impacts, risks, opportunities, and strategy as we grapple with game-changing sustainability issues such as global warming.

The Bard MBA in Sustainability seeks motivated candidates from a variety of academic and professional backgrounds. Our selection committee considers academic performance and proof of quantitative skill, but also takes a close look at our applicants’ statement of purpose, general writing skills, relevant work experience, and faculty and employer evaluations. Applicants are expected to have demonstrated leadership potential, a commitment to business and environmental issues, and an aptitude for graduate study. The Bard MBA program offers competitive merit fellowships to qualified candidates. The Bard MBA in Sustainability is designed to prepare students for leadership positions in both innovative start-ups and major corporations with in-depth knowledge of core business competencies through the lens of sustainability.
