Business school offers One Planet MBA

World’s first postgraduate qualification on sustainable business management to launch in Exeter in September 2011

The world’s first postgraduate qualification focusing on a sustainable approach to business management will launch in September 2011. The One Planet MBA programme will be delivered by the University of Exeter Business School in partnership with environmental organisation WWF.

Jean-Paul Jeanrenaud, director of corporate relations at WWF International said: “Having worked with the private sector for the last ten years, it is obvious that as well as being part of the [environmental] problem, it can also be a major part of the solution. WWF has the ambition to change the face of business education, and the One Planet MBA will play an important role in achieving that objective.”

Professor Alan Knight OBE added: “The world needs business managers and leaders who understand the pressures on global resources and can proactively deliver innovative solutions… Equally importantly, business needs them too.”
