This spring marks the 10th anniversary of Presidio Graduate School‘s first graduating class—22 students who took a risk on a new way of approaching business that doesn’t look at financial gains as the sole determinant of success, but instead takes a systemic perspective, evaluating decisions within the context of how they impact people, profit, and planet. #sustainablemanagement #greenmba #mba

We go to this school not for the promise of higher compensation (though that’s certainly a consideration, too) but for the skills and tools that enable us to better protect what we hold dear. #sustainablemba #changetheworld #mba #outdoors #shasta

    Why Brocade’s Senior Director of Corporate Affairs Came to PGS When making decisions about graduate school, a mentor had this sage advice, “If you’re going to spend tens of thousands of dollars and consume two years—or more, as it would happen—of your life with time away from your family, wouldn’t you want to at least learn something you crave?” #sustainable #greenmba

    "The Dough-Gooder." Raley’s Meg Burritt seeks to change the world, one grocery run at a time. Meg Burritt (C9) wanted to open a bakery. A bakery that was “local, sustainable, and quality.” A bakery that sourced every ingredient—down to the sugar and the flour—as locally as possible. A bakery that was meaningfully integrated into the fabric of the community—as opposed to just being “a place where you go to get a cupcake.” #sustainable #mba #greenmba #foodwaste
