Wharton has added another dual-degree option, pairing its MBA with a Master of Environmental Studies degree offered by Penn’s School of Arts and Sciences (SAS). “This new multidisciplinary degree advances educational goals in both business and environmental studies,” says Eric Orts, a professor of legal studies and business ethics and director of the Initiative for Global Environmental Leadership at Penn/Wharton.

The course of study will groom environmental-issues students for global leadership roles in environmental management, finance, and other business specialties.

Classes in Wharton’s environmental and risk management track will help students develop a range of skills and knowledge they can apply in business practice. The MES portion will deepen their knowledge of environmental issues, teach them technical environmental evaluation and offer them practical field experience.
