Our BBA with a specialization in Business and Sustainability is a 60-credit program, completed in four semesters over 20 months through our cohort learning model, where you will work with classmates on group assignments and presentations, building connections and leveraging experiences to find practical solutions to business challenges.

Your program culminates with a Business Field School and Capstone Project , putting you in the boardroom to address a specific challenge or create a practical evaluation. An International Field School is optional.

What to Expect

You’ll be in the classroom Monday to Friday, 8am to 5pm, actively participating in discussions, completing assignments, and presenting individually as well as with your cohort, with some additional work completed in the evenings and weekends. The final semester of your program starts with a one month  Business Field School, where you will be immersed in an experiential, field-based course, working on a substantive report or addressing a specific challenge. This experience, combined with your learning from the courses in the program, will provide you with the basis for your Capstone Project.
