Seal of Approval
Accredited by AACSB International, Duquesne's MBA Sustainability curriculum has scored high rankings from the Aspen Institute and others for its fully integrated design.
Duquesne's MBA Sustainability degree builds on a solid foundation of core coursework in business fundamentals: accounting, finance, marketing, operations, information technology, and economics.
What's different is the depth of knowledge—the "integrated sustainability" content delivered across required and elective courses.
Designed from the ground up, the MBA Sustainability curriculum goes far beyond comparable programs, adding co-curricular experience and training to further enhance classroom learning.
Your immersion, and the return on your investment, begins at orientation. Our goal is to make the whole of Duquesne's destination quality MBA Sustainability experience far greater than the sum of its integrated parts.
