Sion Burnette (MBA ’19)

"After completing a year in the Bard MBA in Sustainability program, I’m confident I’ve begun developing core business skills that will help me for many years to come. By completing the NYC Lab course, a yearlong consultation between Bard MBA Students and real businesses, the Bard MBA taught me how to manage client relationships, work effectively on a team, and produce well-researched recommendations. The integration of sustainability into all classes and coursework sets this program apart and I’m excited to learn more about the role of business in meeting challenges of the 21st century."
