MBA Sustainability Concentration

Our MBA Sustainability concentration encompasses a wide range of topics including energy, natural resources, the environment, health and social well-being, engineering, and architecture.

The essence of sustainability is considering the impacts of actions today on outcomes in the future. As an outgrowth of the Tepper Sustainability Initiative and in response to increasing demand for sustainability studies, the MBA Sustainability concentration offers students an opportunity to pursue scholarship, coursework, and careers in this ever-growing field.

Both the initiative and concentration draw from the existing sustainability expertise among faculty within the Tepper School and across the university and the university-wide focus on technology, quantitative and computational approaches, and energy topics.

Some courses in the Sustainability concentration include:

  • Energy Policy and Economics
  • Energy Finance
  • Electricity Market Restructuring
  • Catastrophic Risk Analysis
  • Government and Business
  • Sustainable Operations
