Future-Focused Management Education
MBA | MPA | Dual | Continuing Education
Are you looking to develop expertise relevant to the future of sustainability in business and public policy? Presidio Graduate School was the first graduate program to fully integrate sustainability into every course. Students here work collaboratively to equip themselves with the skills and experience to transform businesses, government, and not-for-profit organizations. They learn how to value non-financial assets like equity, social justice, vibrant communities, and a healthy environment. And they work within a systems thinking mindset that enables them to integrate social, environmental, and economic progress to create a more sustainable world. Graduates emerge prepared and eager to take on the toughest challenges facing society.
Our systems approach involves renewing professional disciplines by using tools to consider all the inputs and outputs of all stakeholders of a given situation. Not just the financials, but also the hard-to-quantify forces of workplace culture, societal costs and benefits, community well-being, supplier issues, and environmental stewardship.
The hallmark of the Presidian experience is sustainability. We look at all solutions through the lens of sustainable outcomes. At PGS, sustainability is not covered in an elective course or research paper. Sustainability for a flourishing future is at the core of everything we do to meet the new definitions of what success really means.
The PGS network is powerful. Since 2002, our graduates have made their mark on sustainable business management and public policy. Some made their way to the White House and Wall Street. Others are making a positive impact on everything from family farms to high tech startups.
