Bard's MBA program, ranked the #1 Green MBA by Princeton Review in 2021 and 2022, is one of a few programs globally that embeds a focus on sustainability across all courses. Bard students master the business case for sustainability, understanding how to align financial success with social and environmental goals. Faculty members teach during intensive weekend residencies held once a month in Brooklyn; in addition, they teach an online evening session each week between the monthly residencies.
