Program Overview

The mission of the Business Department is to provide students with the skills and experience necessary to make decisions, solve problems, and devise policies that are socially, environmentally, and economically sound. With a focus on three Ps - People, Planet, and Profits - the business curriculum prepares students to become leaders in their businesses, organizations, and communities. The business degree culminates with a capstone sequence in Sustainable Business, where students research, design, start-up, and operate their own sustainable venture.

The goals of the Sustainable Business Program are the following:

  1. To prepare students to work effectively as business leaders and professionals in a complex and changing world.
  2. To provide students with a foundation of business knowledge and skills that enables them to pursue further business studies as well as a lifetime of learning.
  3. To prepare students to make socially, environmentally, and economically sound contributions to their businesses, organizations, and communities.
