Sustainable MBA Programs Thriving

| Tuesday May 17th, 2005 | 5 Comments

bain_logo.gifOne of a few MBA programs to make sustainability a cornerstone of the business education, Bainbridge Graduate Institute has just graduated its first class (greenbiz report here). Additionally, Bainbridge reports that applications to their program have tripled, while other tom MBA programs nationwide have seen a 30% drop in applications.

Kevin Hagen, principal of Shuksan Energy Consulting and a member of the graduating class, is not surprised, “Sustainability is the next big trend in business. Huge corporations are in the process of transitioning to more sustainable business models-within the next five years, I think MBAs trained in sustainability will become mission-critical employees. BGI is providing the training necessary to fill this rapidly emerging need.”

ED NOTE: Actually, this is the second graduation class from Bainbridge (even better!). Thanks to Eric Magnuson for pointing this out.

    I have to make a slight correct to this post. BGI grauated its second graduating class last weekend. I know this because I was one of the graduates.
    The Greedbiz report link points to a story from 2004. Here is the current story.
