Top Sustainable MBA Programs

A bienniel survey, Beyond Grey Pinstripes 2005, identifies the top 30 MBA programs for 'sustainable-business education' and names Stanford the top school.

"Beyond Grey Pinstripes 2005 identified the Top 30 MBA programs by inviting nearly 600 MBA programs to report on their coursework and research; 1,842 courses and 828 journal articles from leading peer-reviewed business publications were analyzed. Stanford's program distinguished itself not only by offering a large number of courses that addressed social and environmental issues in business, but also by the relatively large proportion of students who actually took those classes.

...The report is the only global survey that evaluates MBA programs for their efforts to prepare graduates on social and environmental stewardship in business."

Leaves out some fully-integrated Sustainable MBA programs...

...such as Presidio School of Management, offering an accredited MBA in Sustainable Management that integrates sustainability into every single one of its 16 courses. Amongst the faculty at Presidio are Hunter Lovins (world-renowned sustainability consultant and co-author of Natural Capitalism), Warren Langley (former president of the Pacific Stock Exchange), and Paula Thielen (a CPA/MBA with a Ph.D. in Corporate Social Responsibility).

Other such programs I'm aware of are Bainbridge Graduate Institute and New College of California Green MBA:

Additional Program

Duquesne University, out of Pittsburgh also has launched a full-time program for a Sustainable MBA. Their 2007 Aspen ranking was 8th. More about the program can be found here, http://mba.sustainability.duq.edu.

One cool element of the Duquesne MBA Sustainability program is the mandatory global study trips. Germany and Japan in 2007. More here: http://mba.sustainability.duq.edu/program/global-study-trip.asp
