The financial benefits of decisions are important, but just part of the equation. The bottom line is that an MBA or MPA in sustainable management is the means to dramatically improve strategy, stakeholder value and create wealth for individuals, organizations, and communities. Teaching through a sustainability lens means accomplishing these goals and meeting these objectives in a manner that minimizes future risks while optimizing and restoring economic, environmental and social impact and value

Today’s top challenges are complex.

There are few, if any, major efforts in one area that don’t have consequences that effect another. Our systems-thinking approach views business and government as an integrated whole and designs solutions that account for human, economic and environmental concerns to create a sustainable and prosperous bottom line.

PGS embeds sustainability into every course—from leadership to accounting, marketing to economics. Through our renowned Experiential Learning program in San Francisco, students apply sustainability and social responsibility frameworks and methods to real cases in large and small companies, government agencies and nonprofit organizations.

At Presidio Graduate School, our degrees reveal extraordinary opportunities for innovation and impact at the intersection of environmental, economic and social systems.
