One of the noticeable trends in graduate-level business administration programs has been the emergence of socially responsible Master of Business Administration programs, which emphasize preparing leaders to create, build, and run sustainable businesses. These MBA offerings range from socially responsible concentrations within established business schools to original, innovative programs offered by new business schools.
Two programs in the latter category are the MBA in Sustainable Management offered by the Presidio School of Management in San Francisco (http://www.presidiomba.org/mba_overview/) and the MBA in Sustainable Business offered by the Bainbridge Graduate Institute in Seattle (http://www.bgiedu.org/content/view/9/40/). They are worth taking a look at if only to gain a sense of the creative thinking going on behind this new wave of business education.
