The University of Exeter Teams Up with WWF to Offer Sustainable MBA

"One Planet MBA" to launch in October 2011

The University of Exeter and the World Wide Fund for Nature have announced plans to launch a new, sustainable MBA program.

The program, which starts in the fall of 2011, is called the "One Planet MBA," and will integrate global and sustainable aspects into a traditional MBA curriculum. According to Exeter's website, "the One Planet MBA will be a traditional MBA with all the expected ingredients but global in outlook," and will create "managers capable of running organisations in a culturally diverse, resource-constrained world."

With the new partnership and program, Exeter will build upon its reputation as a university committed to sustainability and other environmental issues. The university's School of Biosciences is home to the expanding Centre for Ecology and Conservation, a research hub.
