Presidio Graduate School’s MBA program prepares students to be skilled and visionary managers in any field or enterprise. Today’s business professionals must not only lead successful organizations but understand the many complex and interdependent issues that define sustainability, from climate change and cleantech to stakeholder engagement and social responsibility. Mastering them requires both a new skill set and new mind set we call Sustainable Management.
Our MBA degree connects rigorous management theory and practice with ecological and social awareness, systems thinking and sustainable leadership. Our MBA curriculum weaves these elements together to empower our students to become effective leaders, change agents and entrepreneurs in the service of a more just, prosperous and sustainable world.
Presidio Graduate School is an affiliate of Alliant International University. By virtue of this affiliation, the MBA degree program is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.
The MBA program is a 60-credit curriculum with 15 required courses and one elective. The program combines face-to-face classroom experience with the flexibility of interactive distance-learning. Students have as much in-class time as a traditional MBA program. However, Presidio provides an additional level of learning through a robust online component that develops essential management skills and facilitates virtual collaboration among students.
The full-time program spans two years and the part-time program four years. Each semester, classroom instruction takes place over a four-day residency period (part-time students attend classes for two days). These residencies occur Thursday through Sunday once a month for five months.
