Remember the feeling of excitement on your first day of class? Imagine the first day of creating a whole new MBA program.
I was honored last month to give the inaugural lecture to a class of 19 candidates for a Masters in Sustainable Business, the new MBA created by Bard College. Unlike most MBA programs, the fundamentals of doing business in sustainable ways are woven throughout the entire curriculum. More, we will be using the city of New York as a living laboratory – yep, that’s a class that all students are enrolled in – exploring how one of the world’s great cities is implementing more sustainable practices, what the best businesses are doing in sustainable finance, manufacturing, retail and services.
As part of this, all students will be blogging here, describing the cool new companies they are finding, the best practices of making it happen and the cool things that they are learning in their classes.
Want to come along for the ride? Sit back and enjoy. Every week now, the students and faculty will be bringing you the best of Bard MBA.
