Preservation of natural resources: With the core coursework of the Sustainability MBA, you will gain an understanding of the abundance of renewable natural resources that can be used in place of finite resources like fossil fuels. Analysis of the effectiveness of certain resources in specific practices is also emphasized, so you will be able to make the best decisions for sustainability within whatever company you work for in the future.
Social responsibility: Societal pressure to utilize sustainable business practices is a significant motivator for companies to shift their priorities, so it is important to have an understanding of the social impact of sustainability.
