Clark University Dual MBA/MA in Environmental Science and Policy. Worcester, MA. Clark University is piloting a dual degree program for students who will earn two degrees during three years of graduate study—a Master of Art’s degree in Environmental Science & Policy from IDCE and a Master of Business Administration from GSOM. The ES&P program is closely interconnected with the three other IDCE Master’s programs, and also maintains vibrant links with other educational programs at Clark, including the prestigious School of Geography; social science and humanities departments, such as sociology, economics and government; the physical and life sciences, such as biology, chemistry, and physics; the George Perkins Marsh Institute and the Mosakowski Institute for Public Enterprise.ES&P students admitted to the dual degree program will now be able to integrate the perspectives, knowledge and skills they gain from the ES&P courses, which focus on policy analysis and the use of scientific and quantitative tools, with perspective, knowledge, and skills from business and management. Future professionals who combine the mastery in these two areas will thrive as building bridges between the private and public sectors is increasingly valued, and as cross-sectoral career paths are increasingly common. Students completing the dual degree program may consider jobs in environmental consulting, entrepreneurial environmental leadership (like renewable energy systems), sustainable technology businesses, nonprofit operations and management, corporate sustainability, and others.
Harvard Business School MBA with an Emvironmental Emphasis. Boston, MA. – Through cases and discussion, environmental content is included in a range of HBS courses related to agribusiness, energy, finance, real estate, technology and operations, entrepreneurship, negotiation, social enterprise, and leadership. Recent HBS courses with environmental content include Business and the Environment, Energy; Building Green Businesses; Customers, Commerce, and Society; Institutions, Macroeconomics, and the Global Economy; and Agribusiness.

In addition to lectures, simulations, and field work, more than 80% of HBS classes are built on the case method. Cases throughout the curriculum feature environmental content, from creating “cradle-to-cradle” sustainable design at Herman Miller Furniture to “greening” the supply chain at Starbucks Coffee to determining strategic direction in the alternative fuels industry.
