Courses in Sustainability: Yes
Sustainability course is: Optional
Description: Sustainability at the University of Oregon is not a new concept--it is in our DNA and part of our heritage. The Oregon MBA program offers sophisticated, analytical approaches to green business. We connect our students to the regional stream of innovation and integrity taking place around sustainable business throughout the Pacific Northwest. Students also travel to learn about other best practices, with four major business trips per class group, and scheduled speakers. Our new program manager for the Center for Sustainable Business Practices, Dr. Laura Strohm, brings with her twenty-five years of both academic and private-sector experience in sustainability. We have the Avamere Professor of Practice (Dr. Michael Crooke, former CEO of Patagonia) who focuses on integrating sustainability into advanced business strategy. On top of the conventional MBA core coursework, students who affiliate with the Center for Sustainable Business Practices complete an additional five sustainability courses and two quarters of real-world strategic planning projects to qualify for the graduate specialization.. Last, but not least, the rich sustainability curriculum and activities of the whole University of Oregon are open to our MBA students http://www.oregonmba.com/curriculum/tracks.html http://lcb.uoregon.edu/csbp/
Research Opportunities in Sustainability: Yes
Description: Within the overall Oregon MBA program, the Center for Sustainable Business Practices provides the platform for experiential learning on sustainability. The center complements and supports the Oregon MBA curriculum by linking students with industry via consulting projects and internships, seminars, speakers, and mentorships, leadership, and event management opportunities. Students are encouraged to tackle real-world, relevant challenges and issues in sustainability facing industry and government today and in the future. See http://lcb.uoregon.edu/csbp/ In addition to research opportunities for MBA students, the Lundquist College of Business offers a PhD program to pursue extensive academic research along side our faculty.

School's environmental commitment:  
1: . With a "silver" LEED designation, the Lillis Business Complex at the University of Oregon's Lundquist College of Business opened in 2003 and is recognized as the first certified environmentally friendly business school facility in the country. The Lillis Business Complex was the first LEED Certified government building in Oregon, and at the time it opened housed the largest solar installation in the Pacific Northwest.
2: The Center for Sustainable Business Practices was established in 2008 as part of a new MBA curriculum offering students the ability to focus their education in one of four curricular tracks. The sustainable business track in the Oregon MBA codified the University of Oregon’s commitment to sustainable business practices that has been part of the program and the state of Oregon’s heritage. We've been teaching and practicing it for almost two decades. For us sustainability is not just about protection and remediation, but also about innovation and a new paradigm of value creation. Sustainability matters to customers, financial markets, employees, and stakeholders. Future business leaders need to excel at building a competitive advantage while reconciling these diverse--and sometimes contradictory--demands. http://lcb.uoregon.edu/csbp/
3: . The Oregon MBA program and the Center for Sustainable Business Practices actively support student groups advancing the cause for sustainable business. They support both the MBA and Undergraduate Net Impact chapters at the University of Oregon. These Net Impact chapters see business students partner with law and other student on campus to regularly organize, manage, and host sustainability conferences. These conferences and events occur in Eugene in Portland and have included exceptionally prominent speakers and guest driving the regions sustainable business economy.
