Design and Sustainability in Theory
As a future leader, it is no longer an option in the world to ignore global and environmental issues in business. You will need creativity, innovation, and broader world awareness in order to be an effective leader. Recognizing this, Weatherhead has incorporated both design and sustainability courses into its core curriculum. With the skills of design thinking and the knowledge of sustainable practice, you will be prepared to meet the challenges facing business in the 21st century.
Design and Sustainability in Practice
The Weatherhead full-time MBA program provides students the opportunity to practice what we preach in AMES Business Models, a year-long experience divided over two semesters. Building on the knowledge acquired in the first year of the MBA program, you will work in teams with outside business clients on three different projects. The exposure to building business models for a start-up, an established company, and a company outside of the United States will give you the experience you need to make a difference in any company upon graduation.
