MBA alum Jenifer Wills was offered a position as human resources generalist at Camp Fire Columbia in March 2014, just as she was finishing her program in nonprofit management.
Students complete their MBA in Sustainable Business by creating a capstone project that applies their learning. Many create and/or implement sustainable practices business and operations plans for the organizations they work for or new businesses they want to create. Others tackle research projects and feasibility studies on an array of "green" topics. The capstone gives you the opportunity to put what you've learned in our sustainable MBA program to immediate use.
Here is a sampling of the projects our students have completed for their green MBA capstone:
- Creating marketing tools to secure biomass buyers
- Undertaking a feasibility study for green roof agriculture
- Developing a proposal for an Associates of Science degree in sustainability at a community college
- Creating a landfill diversion composting program
