Presidians graduate with the ability to solve the problems of the next 100 years.

Here’s a glimpse at how.


We are the only school of our kind. PGS offers one of the first, and highest ranked, sustainable MBAs and the only sustainable MPA in the country – both come together in our unique, fully integrated dual degree program which enables our graduates to effectively bridge the critical divide between commerce and government.

The world needs what we teach, now more than ever. There is no question that in today’s world, we need every bit of help to protect our environment and hard-earned rights while also moving the world forward to new levels of prosperity. Systems-level, intersectoral problem solving that reaches public administration is a tangible remedy our most pressing sustainability challenges – and teaching in this way is our contribution to the solution. 

The PGS network is powerful. Since 2002, our graduates have made their mark on sustainable management and public policy. Some have made their way into the white house and Wall Street and others are making their impact on farms, Silicon Valley, and abroad. 

It’s a fun place to do serious work. Although we take on some of the hardest challenges of our time, we do so among like-minded colleagues, partners, and friends. Collaboration and community enable us to achieve significant results. Thanks to harnessing this key to success, Presidians also regularly get to experience the thrill and joy that comes from making a positive difference in our world.

We love the work itself and are proud to live our lives with meaning.

Together, Presidians are changing our world – for the better. Join us.

“Our MBA and MPA programs teach all the business and public administration fundamentals including operations, finance, and innovation. What is different? At PGS every course is taught through a sustainability lens – in our opinion, there is no other way.”

To make decisions that work for people, planet and profit, you must be able to understand, and work within, the context of whole systems. PGS gives students tools to do just that.

MBA Program Foundations and MPA Program Foundations


We don’t live in a sustainable world . . . yet.

Leaders for today’s world need to know how business and policy decisions are interdependent so that they can impact positive change.

Presidio Graduate School is here to equip Presidians with the interpersonal, implementation, innovation, and change-management skills needed to make pragmatic decisions in the world now to ensure there will be a sustainable world tomorrow.

Our MBA and MPA program courses are interconnected and designed to work together creating a powerful learning environment that lasts well beyond graduation.

No silos. No fiefdoms. No blind spots. A new way of thinking about management.

Sustainability is not an add-on at Presidio Graduate School because it has always been present in every course and spreads across all disciplines. Systems thinking incorporates themes and methods across all courses, career development, entrepreneurial plans, experiential learning projects, and internships with private and public organizations.

A reciprocal learning community.

PGS’s scholar-practitioner faculty blend theory and experience in their courses. Monthly class time includes interactive workshop exercises, dyads, quick-fire sessions, dialogue, and lectures. Students co-create the curriculum with the professors, providing in-class and out-of-class feedback on projects. This provides time for integrating multiple perspectives and vibrant conversations.

The classroom experience and conversations at PGS are much richer than the typical academic experience. We all “get it” here and work together to manage right. Come see for yourself. You deserve to learn better.
