Georgia Tech Scheller MBA and other Georgia Tech graduate students have a range of classroom and extracurricular opportunities to explore. Whether it's through pursuing the Strategic Sustainability concentration or simply seeking to understand sustainability as an increasingly important business dynamic, students can engage on many levels.
MBA and Graduate Programs
Discover information for core and electives courses for our sustainability-themed MBA concentration.
Sustainability concerns and opportunities touch almost every aspect of business and, therefore, MBA careers. Your ability to identify trends, reduce risks, and seize opportunities for business value will open up career opportunities and make you a better candidate and leader, whether you are seeking a role focused on a sustainability topic or pursuing a more traditional career track.
To help MBA students best manage these opportunities, we offer workshops, panel discussions, advising, and mentoring. The Center also maintains a close relationship with the Jones MBA Career Center to coordinate sustainability-focused career events as well as to inform career advisors about corporate sustainability trends and opportunities.
Graduate Sustainability Fellows Program
Fellows deepen their engagement in sustainability by working on year-long projects.
Net Impact - MBA Chapter
The Net Impact Club supports the development of future business leaders by elevating awareness of sustainability and equipping students with skills to address environmental and social impact issues as they progress in their careers. The MBA Chapter holds a National Gold Status Chapter designation.

Impact Speaker Series
The Impact Speaker Series is a biweekly series of meaningful conversations.

Topics include entrepreneurship (both social and commercial), innovation, leadership, and sustainability.
