MBA in Sustainable Business

MBA Project

MBA Project

Learning different topics in a classroom environment is one thing, applying them to the real world quite another. We believe that only applied learning has the power to develop you into a person that can take on the world and make a significant difference.

The MBA Project gives you the chance to do just that. You choose a company, idea or project of your choice and develop a comprehensive consulting report on it covering industry and market research, business strategy, marketing, human resources, operations, finance and risk management. Many of these projects end up being the launch pad for start-up companies – in recent years, often as social enterprises.

This is your chance to connect what you have learned how you wish to engage professionally. This stepping stone experience is cited by our participants as one of the most enriching elements of our program – this is where they are able to put everything they have learned into a broader context, understanding the interconnections of the many individual subject topics they have been studying.

“The project added many dimensions of learning that were important, both being able to practice the sustainability theories learned in class and experience leading change first hand. Combining the project work with the leading change modules was a great success, since it offered time for reflections which is rarely given in industry. The highest personal learning came from the soft skills of understanding resistance and trying to get people to start discussing the “road block”.
