The major in Sustainable Business has been developed to meet the needs of students who wish to add a sustainability skill set to their traditional discipline (accounting, finance, marketing, etc.). Sustainable Business is not intended to be chosen as the primary or sole MBA major, but rather as a second major. This major is conceptually anchored in business strategy, with the understanding that sustainable ventures require a strategic mindset with respect to the integration of environmental, social and governance issues. Whether one is managing a small business with the intent of offering a sustainable good or service, or one is managing a large transnational corporation seeking to implement sustainable practices throughout the firm, strategy is at the core of the approach to sustainable business. Sustainability requires systems thinking, or as some have put it, 'cradle-to-cradle' thinking, emphasizing the 'reduce/reuse/recycle' paradigm.
