The University of Oregon has come out on top for a second consecutive year in the category of Best Green MBA as ranked by The Princeton Review.
What does it mean to be green? The Princeton Review surveyed 25,000 students attending the 294 business schools and bases the ranking on students’ assessments of how well their school is preparing them in the areas of environmental, sustainability, and social responsibility issues, and for a career in a green job market.
“We are honored to earn this recognition again for our dedication and leadership in the sustainability space,” said Izabel Loinaz, program manager and instructor at the Center for Sustainable Business Practices at the University of Oregon’s Lundquist College of Business. “It reinforces what our graduates, faculty members, and community partners have long known: The path to an amazing ‘green’ career starts in Oregon.”
The Center for Sustainable Business Practices is home to the Oregon MBA’s green MBA track. The center promotes the Lundquist College of Business’s research, teaching, and outreach activities in this vital area of inquiry. It is dedicated to preparing students with tools and knowledge actively used—and sought out—by today’s leading companies in the area of sustainability.
The Princeton Review’s 80-question survey asked students to rate their schools on several topics and report on their experiences regarding academics, student body and campus life, and their career plans. On average, 85 students at each business school were surveyed for the lists’ 2017 editions.
The University of Oregon bested many esteemed peers in its #1 ranking. Among the top 10 for Best Green MBA were Stanford University, University of Michigan, and Yale University.
