USD MBA Program Ranks Among Top Green Programs In US Flyer

The University of San Diego offers one of the nation's top green MBAs, according to The Princeton Review®. The education services company chose the USD School of Business for the list Best Green MBAs, appearing at #7 in the nation and #1 in California.

"The USD School of Business is committed to business stewardship of the world,” said USD School of Business dean, Timothy Keane. “Learning stewardship principles, like regenerative development, provides our MBA students with the practical skills needed to replenish our common home."

The ranking is based on a survey of 17,800 students at 244 business schools in the U.S. USD was included as a Best Green MBA based on students' assessments of how well the school is preparing them in environmental/sustainability and social responsibility issues, and for a career in a green job market.

The USD School of Business requires master’s in business administration students to take three courses focused on ethics, corporate social responsibility and/or sustainability. The program offers research opportunities in sustainability, and a concentration in Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainable Enterprise. In addition, students must complete 15 hours of community service helping a local non-profit solve a business issue. 

The University of San Diego School of Business was also included in The Princeton Review’s lists of Best Business Schools for 2021 and Top 50 Graduate Schools for Entrepreneurship Studies (#45). 

The Princeton Review is not affiliated with Princeton University. All schools that participated in The Princeton Review Best Business Schools for 2021 survey project were considered for the lists. Schools that did not participate were not considered.
