New track covers social, environmental and financial aspects of business

The University of Oregon's Lundquist College of Business will offer an MBA track in Sustainable Business Practices starting this year, according to a University of Oregon news release.

The new track will help MBA participants "balance social, environmental and financial responsibilities," according to the release.

The track includes a mix of core business curriculum (such as courses in "Financial Accounting" and "Managerial Economics") with sustainability-focused classes in topics like "Industrial Ecology" and "Energy and Ecosystem Finance."

Additionally, through the school's dedicated "Center for Sustainable Business Practices," students will also have access to some sustainability focused resources, such as a dedicated career advisor and road trips. 

For more information, please see the UO press release announcing the launch of the MBA track in Sustainable Business Practices.
