One Planet MBA - University of Exeter, UK

Developing a new generation of business leaders

WWF and Exeter driving change in business education

Business education is central to the emergence of the new business models and the new generation of business leaders we need. Yet, as a sector, it is not moving fast enough. The One Planet MBA was initiated in 2010 by WWF and the University of Exeter – a UK Top 10 university – with the ambition to lead the way and inspire change.

The ambition to create value for the world

This cutting-edge unique MBA embeds sustainability across the curriculum. It does not aim at training Sustainability or CSR specialists, but developing ‘One Planet’ minded business leaders who can run organisations in today’s highly challenging context from any of the core business functions. Global in its outlook, this program is also made unique by the diversity of cultural and professional background as well as the gender balance of the cohorts.

The One Planet MBA is for experienced managers who want to gain the best business knowledge and skills, and use them to create value for the world. It is available Full-Time (12 months) and Executive (part time over 2 years).

An outstanding and leading edge programme.

In particular the quality of the module design and assessment is impressive, especially the integration of social and environmental aspects into accounting and finance modules.

A very high standard of MBA education.
