Launch of Presidio Graduate School Online Education Program in Sustainable Management

San Francisco, CA
Presidio Graduate School »

The Presidio Graduate School in San Francisco is one of the top sustainable management business schools in the world.  Founded in 2003, the school has graduated over 800 alumni in MBA, MPA, Dual Degree and professional development programs in sustainable management.  In April 2015 the New York Times included it on a short list of leading business schools as the one to go to “if you want to change the world,” and it was voted the leading sustainable management school in the world in 2013 and 2014 by Net Impact.  Graduates have gone on to work in many leading companies including Apple, Facebook, Cisco, Google, Pacific Gas and Electric, as well as city government positions and organizations that include the Environmental Defense Fund. 

In 2016 they will launch a virtual, fully online version of their programs that will greatly expand their reach, and allow students who are not able to travel to San Francisco for a period of residency to complete the program and obtain a degree.  

Blackstone Ranch Institute provided an initial grant for this effort.
