Today's business climate is moving with the times in a socially- and environmentally-conscious direction. Companies are actively seeking solutions for combining profitability with world betterment. If you're interested in an MBA that offers rigorous instruction in core quantitative skills while taking the triple bottom line—people, planet, profit—seriously, then consider the Weatherhead MBA.
At Weatherhead, you'll tackle hands-on project work using techniques drawn from the world of design. By adopting the right-brained tools of a designer, you'll get in the habit of thinking beyond the default response to a problem. This training can take your creativity to the next level as you work to create sustainable value for business and society.
Why Use Design Practices?
Sometimes "best practices" just aren't good enough. Design thinking imagines alternatives that have not yet made their way to the table, game-changing ideas still unformed, and fresh perspectives that could yield very different views of a problem.
We know that businesses cannot succeed by looking at every challenge through the same spreadsheet-based prism. Managers need to reach beyond one-size-fits-all solutions. Design in management consists, broadly, of observing behaviors, visualizing ideas, prototyping alternatives, and refining the best of them.

Sustainable value isn't just about conducting green business; it's about conducting sustainable business, in every sense of the word: creating lasting value for stakeholders in the boardroom, the break room, and the wider community, too. At Weatherhead, you will learn about entrepreneurship, intrapreneurship, and social entrepreneurship as ways to lead the charge for sustainable value in establishing an organization or while working within an existing organization. You don't need to be CEO to effect that kind of change: We believe in leadership at all levels.
