The Oregon MBA program at the Lundquist College of Business is second in the United States and ninth worldwide in a new ranking of the "Top 30 Global Green MBA schools" by the Canadian business magazine Corporate Knights.
On the magazine's list of the top 10 small MBA programs—those with fewer than 100 graduates per year--the Oregon MBA was ranked third worldwide and second in the U.S.
"For more than three decades, the Lundquist College of Business has been preparing students to go out and make a difference implementing green business practices across organizations of all sizes," said Rebecca Monro, assistant dean for the MBA program. "We think this is what sets our program apart."
The Oregon MBA was specifically cited for its Center for Sustainable Business Practices; the Avamere Professor of Practice--Michael Crooke, former CEO of Patagonia--who focuses on integrating sustainability into advanced business strategy; and the overall "rich sustainability curriculum and activities" of the University of Oregon.
