Committed to Sustainability
Our Undergrad Business Program was ranked #2 in Sustainability by BusinessWeek (2012)
The Undergraduate Business Program at the Mason School of Business is committed to providing opportunities for students to learn about sustainable business practices and corporate social responsibility. With courses like Environmental Consulting, Sustainability and the Seas, and Green Supply Chain, business students have the opportunity to learn about sustainability as part of their business majors or minors.
Putting learning into action, Business students also have many opportunities to get involved outside the classroom:
- The first Net Impact Undergrad chapter in Virginia was established at the Mason School in Spring of 2008. The Net Impact Undergrad student organization is involved in an array of sustainable business-related activities across the W&M campus.
- Several guest speakers, including Adam Werbach (Strategy for Sustainability), Jeff Hittner (Corporate Eco Forum), and Aaron Schiller (Saatchi & Saatchi S), have come to enlighten and energize our students about sustainability.
- The Mason School of Business initiated the Saatchi & Saatchi S Do One Thing (DOT) for Sustainability movement, which swept the William & Mary campus, making W&M the first DOT university.
- We hosted the first ever Corporate & College Collaborative for Sustainability for Undergraduate Students and Business Leaders on Oct. 1 & 2, 2010.
