MS in Sustainability/MBA
The Saint Louis University Center for Sustainability and the John Cook School of Business jointly administer a MS in Sustainability/MBA dual degree, full-time program.
Graduates of SLU’s MS in Sustainability/MBA dual degree program earn both a Master of Science in Sustainability and a Master of Business Administration. Our MS in Sustainability/MBA program is designed for students who are interested in the critical link between business and sustainability. Through courses that bring the latest measurement and research in the field with key leadership skills, students will understand, anticipate and navigate the complex and evolving landscape of social, fiscal and environmental practices and policies in a low-carbon economy.
This program includes a study abroad component where students will study foreign-based business cases, visit local businesses, and attend guest lectures. Scheduled between the fall and spring semesters, this ten-day trip provides students with the opportunity to gain valuable hands-on international business experience.
The dual degree combines rigorous business training with a systems-based understanding of the social, ecological, and economic impacts of humans’ interaction with their environment. Coursework is designed to deliver a broad base of knowledge of core business and sustainability concepts, an understanding of how sustainable business practices can enhance business performance in a socially and ecologically responsible manner, and the skills needed to assume a leadership role in the global, 21st century economy.
