School's environmental commitment:  
1: The joint degree MBA/Master of Science in Environmental Management program is designed for graduate students and working professionals who seek or hold careers in the environmental field. The goal of the MBA/MS Environmental Management program is to enhance and broaden the skills and knowledge necessary to meet the demands and changes of the environmental marketplace - in public agencies and government bodies, the consulting sector, and industry.
2: Net Impact at USF is organized for and by USF graduate students to inspire stewardship in corporate and social responsibility, social entrepreneurship, nonprofit management, international development and environmental sustainability amongst the university's future business leaders. In line with that mission, students of the Net Impact club at the University of San Francisco School of Management began a movement that has now resulted in the reworking of all water fountains in Malloy Hall to include the capacity to fill metal, reusable water bottles. Malloy Hall, the home of USF's business and management programs, became the pioneer building on campus to align itself with the new university initiative that seeks to ban the sale of plastic water bottles which can number as many as 5,000 plastic bottles a day on USF’s campus. USF School of Management Net Impact students also take part in service projects around the Bay Area, including clean up at San Francisco’s Ocean Beach.
3: The Green Team is a faculty and staff initiative that provides leadership in three main areas: education about the environment, stewardship of the environment, and outreach and service to the environment.
