Leading the way in sustainable education

“[Most] universities are large, traditional institutions that tend to stick with what they know, and many major business schools have not overhauled tried-and-true programs, instead offering one-off courses on sustainability or ethics. Presidio...aims to include sustainability and social justice in every business course. ‘We can't do business as usual. We have to do new business.’”
Maggie Winslow, Academic Dean
As featured in TIME Magazine, Inside the Battle for the Hearts and Minds of Tomorrow's Business Leaders

What I took away from my Presidio MBA

Why I Chose Presidio’s MBA Program

“I decided to study at Presidio to help me transition from a career as a documentary film director into building sustainability-focused startups. One of the biggest frameworks I carry with me from Presidio is making the business case for sustainability, which was emphasized in all our coursework. While I occasionally refer back to my course notes, it’s ultimately the relationships I built with Presidio alumni and faculty that continue to nourish me as a leader.”
Peter Glenn, MBA, 2011
Co-Founder of EV Life
