Executive MBA

Executive MBA offerings at the Scheller College of Business include the Global Business and Management of Technology Executive MBA degree programs as well as a variety of specialty and custom executive education options. Both Executive MBA degree programs include a required sustainability module, and students have additional opportunities to further explore the intersection of sustainability and business.

Executive MBA Degree Programs

Both the Global Business and Management of Technology Executive MBA programs include the course Business Strategies for Sustainability. The course provides executives with skills to realign a company’s competitive positioning with positive social outcomes, how to innovate by turning environmental and social challenges into business opportunity, and how to be a transformative, far-sighted leader in the era of climate change.

Custom Programs

Increasingly, the complexity of our world and the speed of change means businesses have to understand and proactively manage a daunting amount of information and competing interests, including resource scarcity and other supply chain constraints; the social and environmental impacts of sourcing decisions; changing consumer awareness and buying decisions based on societal-level concerns; sustainability-related issues that can turn into a PR nightmare overnight; climate change, renewable energy, certifications, reporting; and more.

Companies need leaders and potential employees who understand these issues and determine how to reduce risks, lower costs, and create value. If your company wants to develop these business-focused insights and capabilities in your executives—either in a broad, strategic way or focused on specific areas most pressing for your firm—we would like to explore the best approach for you. The Center and Scheller's Custom Executive Education team can help empower your team to solve these challenges. We develop results-based curricula tailored to your goals, so you can see an immediate impact.
