MBA Programs in Sustainability / CSR / Social Entrepreneurship

An MBA in Sustainability, CSR, or Social Entrepreneurship can help students manage business processes to create and foster social change.

As the world is impacted by global insecurity, climate change, and financial downturn, many firms are integrating CSR and sustainability into their business processes. And indeed, Many students who do MBA programs in these fields look for positions in CSR departments of firms, where they can help develop CSR processes, like managing environmental footprints, reporting on impact, and managing events, for instance. Some sustainability/CSR-oriented MBAs also go on to work in social entrepreneurship, where they put their skills to work in startups that focus on social and environmental issues, or create their own social startups. Yet other MBAs interested in sustainability find jobs in various nonprofit organizations or non-governmental groups.

MBA programs in Sustainability/CSR/Social Entrepreneurship focus on core business concepts while including content about how these concepts apply to CSR and sustainability principles. For instance, MBA classes might cover topics in sustainable supply chains, socially responsible investment, and natural resources. These classes often leverage the latest thinking from experts in the CSR/sustainability space, which, due to global insecurity and financial downturns, has been evolving in recent years.
