Antioch University New England MBA graduates gain the theory and the experiences needed to lead corporations, nonprofits, NGO’s, and personal businesses in sustainability best practices.
Keene, NH (Vocus) April 1, 2010
Students can now get their MBA in one year with Antioch University New England’s accelerated MBA in Organizational and Environmental Sustainability. Recent undergrads and mid-career professionals who enroll will benefit from this fast-moving, twelve-month master’s program.
This Green MBA option immerses students in an extraordinarily collaborative learning environment with weekday classes. Students further their understanding of sustainable business practices and gain management experience through internships, consulting projects, and field-study trips.
This accelerated MBA builds on the strengths of AUNE’s top ranked weekend delivery MBA in Organizational and Environmental Sustainability. Both MBA delivery options focus on training future business and organization leaders to address the triple bottom line of responsibility: economic, social, and environmental success.
The pace, frequency, and meeting schedules are different between the accelerated and weekend model, but the courses, opportunities, and faculty are the same.
The accelerated model is for students who want to complete their MBA in an intensive, fast track program. Most students live in the region, or relocate to the area, for twelve months. Classes meet three days per week and five Saturdays each fall and spring semester. Summer classes are held in May, June, and July.
The two-year, weekend MBA program allows students to continue with professional and personal commitments while taking classes in to Keene, New Hampshire five times in the spring and fall semesters and a week long intensive the first summer semester.
“We need leaders in the new Green Economy and this accelerated MBA option helps fill that gap,” said AUNE Organization & Management program chair Polly Chandler. “Antioch University New England MBA graduates gain the theory and the experiences needed to lead corporations, nonprofits, NGO’s, and personal businesses in sustainability best practices.”
