Sustainability requires innovation and leadership, on the part of public and private partners working together to solve complex problems at multiple scales. The Executive Master of Natural Resources (XMNR) program emphasizes the need for effective partnerships involving interdisciplinary, multi-institutional, and cross-cultural collaboration among business, civil society, and government. Students work in teams to develop solutions to real world problems. All aspects of the program — including coursework, the international residency, and capstone directed study projects — are designed to bring about institutional and policy change, as well as personal and cultural transformation.
