One Planet MBA - University of Exeter, UK
Developing a new generation of business leaders
WhyThe One Planet MBA was initiated in 2010 by WWF and the University of Exeter – a UK Top 10 university – with the ambition to redefine business education in the face of a fast-changing and highly challenging resource-constrained business environment. Business education as a sector is not moving fast enough and the One Planet MBA intends to lead the way and inspire change.
WhatThis 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.
The One Planet MBA offer unique opportunities to businesses:
- Develop your high potential managers,
- Recruit from new generation of business leaders,
- Benefit from free research and consultancy by offering projects and case studies to students and faculty.
Built around the latest thinking and techniques from a wide range of management disciplines, it offers an international perspective on business. You will learn from lectures, case studies, debates, individual coursework, group projects, real-life assignments, seminars, as well as study groups and student debates. The diversity and wealth of experience in the cohort and the input and guidance from world-class faculty make the One Planet MBA an unrivalled and transformative learning experience.
WhoThe programme is for experienced managers who want to gain the best management knowledge and skills, and use them to create value for the world.

An outstanding and leading edge programme.
