MBA in Sustainability Student

The Presidio Graduate School MBA in Sustainability program is a 53-credit curriculum with 11 required courses, plus three elective courses from one of four specialty concentrations—for a total of 14 courses. Our sustainability masters 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. Combined with virtual collaboration, this structure is ideal for professionals that today need to balance multiple responsibilities.

The program can be completed in 24 months full-time or in 3.5 years if enrolled part-time. Each semester, classroom instruction takes place over a monthly, four-day residency period (part-time students attend classes for two days). These residencies occur Thursday through Sunday, once-a-month for five months.
