New Scholarship for the Bard MBA in Sustainability

We are pleased to announce a special benefit for participants in the 2012 Wall Street Green Summit. Conference registrants are eligible to nominate one person for consideration for a $20,000 scholarship to Bard's MBA in Sustainability.

The new MBA program is one of a handful of programs around the world that fully integrates sustainability into a rigorous business curriculum.

Based in New York City, the MBA also features a unique "weekend residency"structure, accommodating the needs of working professionals. Classes are held once each month over four days, beginning Friday morning and ending Monday afternoon. Students also attend online classes Tuesday and Thursday evenings during the semester. A key component of the Bard MBA curriculum is NYCLab. During the first year of study, teams of students consult for New York “area businesses, government agencies, and nonprofits.

Faculty teaching in Fall 2012 includes sustainable business pioneer Hunter Lovins, MBA Director and economist Eban Goodstein, and leadership expert Don Carlson.

The Bard MBA curriculum provides a firm foundation in core business competencies with a focus throughout on the integrated bottom line: economics, environment, and social equity. From courses on leadership to operations, marketing to finance, and economics to strategy, the program builds sustainability in from the ground up.

The Wall Street Green Summit Scholarship of $10,000 each year for two years, equaling a third of the program's total tuition, is available for a student enrolling in the MBA in the Fall of 2012. The scholarship will be awarded to the student judged most likely to have a career advancing the ideals of the Wall Street Green Summit.
