BU Launches New MBA Concentration
Boston University Graduate School of Management has announced the launch of a new concentration for MBA candidates. The new concentration, Energy and Environmental Sustainability (EES) is aligned with the School’s mission to prepare innovative and ethical leaders who understand the impact of business on society and create value for the world. The concentration goes into effect immediately. Second-year students are encouraged to apply for the new concentration.
Career opportunities for students that choose to complete their MBA with an EES concentration reach across many industries. Students will have the option of working in sustainability offices of multi-national consumer product companies, working to improve the sustainability of products and supply chains. The concentration is also a helpful area of study for students who want to lead organizations that are increasingly concerned with climate change and environmental sustainability.
Students that choose to complete this new concentration will learn to understand the energy and sustainability-related challenges that businesses face, how business can adapt to these challenges, and how to identify, evaluate and act upon the opportunities created by these changes. The purpose of the concentration is to provide students with an opportunity to develop necessary and needed knowledge in energy and environmental issues to augment their deep disciplinary skills and other focus areas.
In order to complete the Energy and Environmental Sustainability concentration with the MBA degree, students are required to take five additional units in the area of concentration. Those interested in completing the EES MBA concentration must apply for the concentration along with their MBA degree.
