Why Hire Presidio Graduates
Corporations and other organizations’ stakeholders—investors, customers, board members, employees, community groups—are increasingly calling for environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG). As such, CEOs expect their leadership teams to be fluent in competitive-level ESG goals and practices. At the same time, nonprofits and governmental agencies urgently need leaders with deep expertise in sustainability and social justice who can develop forward-looking, effective programs, processes, and public policy.
Presidio Graduate School prepares our students—current and future leadership team members—to stand out above the noise and greenwash, and to design and implement research-based and organizationally-effective strategies. Presidio graduates receive the right business and public administration graduate education, hands-on organizational experience, sustainability and social justice vision, leadership training, and systems-level execution strategies to help organizations to remain relevant, meet growing customer expectations, address environmental and societal needs, and uncover lasting sources of competitive advantage.
