The article features the MBA in Sustainable Business at Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa, USA—one of just six MBA programmes in the country with a dedicated focus on sustainability. The programme trains students to work with companies and governments that are implementing green initiatives.

'Other programs think of sustainability as a topic that came out of environmental science or the social responsibility of business,' said Dr Scott Herriott, co-chair of the business department, who teaches in the MBA. 'MUM's program looks at sustainability in terms of alliance with Natural Law, so it integrates all other aspects of sustainability. We are trying to understand and pull together the very disparate themes of the sustainability movement.'

'MUM involves students via a fresh, holistic approach in their MBA program that includes not only Consciousness-Based education, but also strong peer and community-based learning where diverse international students support one another,' said MBA graduate Kari Bedi, who works for Natural Capitalism, Inc, helping businesses implement cost-saving sustainable practices.

Beginning in the fall of 2011, the MBA courses in Sustainable Business will be available online via MUM's new distance education programme.
