Amy Davila, MBA '15

Having worked for several big CPG companies, I sought a career shift into the sustainability/social enterprise space. The Bard MBA program has helped shift my career away from "business as usual" by providing me with the knowledge and hands-on experience in sustainable concepts and practices. In addition to having the opportunity to work as a sustainability consultant for a Big Fortune 100 company through NYCLab, I am learning from some of the biggest movers and shakers within the sustainability field.

Faculty

The MBA faculty is composed of distinguished professors and sustainability practitioners that reflect the broad diversity and talent of those working within the sustainability realm.
