Transform The World.
Dominican University of California's GreenMBA is an engaged learning community that seeks to promote financial viability, ecological sustainability, and social justice in business and organizations of all types. Students graduate with practical skills and experience, prepared to innovate, communicate, and lead effectively in the face of global challenges.
We provide a culture of collaboration and innovation for those ready to take responsibility in a complex world that needs rethinking.
Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, Dominican's Green MBA is an on-site program whose graduates receive a Master of Business Administration degree in Sustainable Enterprise. Students have a choice of two-year full-time and three-year part-time structures to accommodate life/work balance while pursuing the degree.
The Green MBA is an engaging learning community where people with strong environmental and social values develop effective leadership capacities to advance economically successful, ecologically restorative, and socially just initiatives in any type of organization.
The GreenMBA curriculum integrates the stewardship of financial, human, and natural capital – beyond the triple bottom line - into a world-class program. Our collaborative, project-oriented approach integrates the development of entrepreneurial and intrapreneurial business skills with critical thinking and leadership capacities. Our emphasis is on systemic approaches to understanding complexity, equipping students to innovate and nurture resilience in organizations of all sizes.
All organizations need to be innovative and entrepreneurial in today's economy. Effectively conceptualizing and leading initiatives that address critical environmental and social issues in business requires creative thinking, market research, financial acumen, resource allocation and the ability to produce new business models. This course challenges students to transform their capacities to generate, plan and execute opportunities to bring new products, services and approaches to the market that have a positive impact on society.
The GreenMBA community is a diverse, multi-generational group with a rich variety of life experience and work backgrounds. We cultivate a sense of place and belonging, and our network extends beyond northern California to global partners and a broad array of organizations and individuals who share our common purpose. Community events for students, alumni, faculty, and guests promote cross-pollination of ideas and the expansion of personal and organizational networks. Small classes, transparent communication, faculty-mentors, and collaborative, project-oriented learning create a supportive, challenging environment.
Our guiding principle is: "Transform Yourself. Transform Business. Transform The World." Program participants begin by exploring their beliefs, purpose, passion, and world view. Students acquire the tools to lead organizations to transcend 'business as usual' practices and adapt with a rapidly changing world.
