Our Master of Business Administration degree is for those who envision a more just, prosperous and sustainable world. We empower students to become skilled and visionary leaders, change agents and entrepreneurs in any field or enterprise. The most distinctive element of our program is our signature integrated curriculum designed to connect rigorous management theory and practice with ecological and social awareness, systems thinking and sustainable leadership.

MBA Program Overview

Presidio Graduate School graduates thrive because today’s successful business professionals must not only lead organizations but understand the many complex and interdependent issues that define sustainability. From climate change and cleantech to stakeholder engagement and social responsibility there are new skills and new mindsets that are crucial to ensuring a more just, prosperous and sustainable world. We define competence in Sustainable Management as a working mastery of these three fundamental concepts.

MBA Program Format

The PGS MBA program is a 60-credit curriculum with 15 required courses and one elective. The program combines face-to-face classroom experience with the flexibility of interactive distance-learning. Students have as much in-class time as a traditional MBA program. However, Presidio Graduate School provides an additional level of learning through a robust online component that develops essential management skills and facilitates virtual collaboration among students.

The full-time program spans two years and the part-time program four years. Each semester, classroom instruction takes place over a four-day residency period (part-time students attend classes for two days). These residencies occur Thursday through Sunday once a month for five months.
