For Release: September 08, 2011
To meet the growing demand for business programs that emphasize sustainable practices, this fall term Marylhurst University will launch a new online Bachelor of Science in sustainable business and online post-baccalaureate and post-graduate certificates in sustainable business.
The three new programs are unique in that every class incorporates important issues and concepts associated with sustainable business management — the interconnection of economic, environmental and human social issues. This positions graduates for successful careers in a fast-paced, global economy that is implementing sustainability across all business practices.
"The new programs were developed in close consultation with leaders in the field of sustainability to ensure students gain relevant, real-world knowledge that is immediately transferable to the work place," said Paul Ventura, Marylhurst University's chair of sustainable business programs. "These programs will help our graduates stand out with the critical thinking, communication and sustainability skills that are required by today's business, NGO and nonprofit communities."
Marylhurst University currently offers online and on-campus MBAs in sustainable business with concentrations in government policy & administration, green development, natural & organic resources and renewable energy.
