Green MBA Highly Rated in Student Guide

Antioch University New England’s MBA in Organizational and Environmental Sustainability has scored high marks in the latest edition of Business as Unusual: The 2010 Student Guide to Graduate Programs. The handbook, targeted to prospective business students, is published by Net Impact, a nonprofit organization of more than 10,000 MBAs, graduate students and executives.

Net Impact’s fifth annual publication compiles and compares ratings of students from ninety-five MBA programs around the world. AUNE’s rankings frequently topped more well-known MBA programs, including Babson College and Dartmouth College.

Ninety-five percent of AUNE’s Green MBA students expressed satisfaction with faculty emphasis on social and environmental issues in the curriculum. An equal number are satisfied with the number of courses that are offered that include social and environmental issues. Ninety-one percent indicated satisfaction with the administration’s commitment to include social and environmental themes in the curriculum, while more than half have secured employment or internships in line with their values.

The guide also recognizes Antioch University New England as a Net Impact Silver Chapter. The coveted distinction ranks AUNE among the top graduate chapters in the world to advance social and environmental sustainability through business—in a category that includes Carnegie Mellon University, Babson College, and the University of California-Berkeley.

“These Net Impact results are wonderful,” said AUNE President David Caruso. “Congratulations to the enterprising students who contributed greatly to this, but also to the faculty and staff in the department whose great work has built such an innovative and successful program in a short time. You all are super!”
