The MBA in Sustainable Systems, also known as the “Hybrid program,” offers both a unique curriculum and a unique low residency format, combining monthly weekend “intensives” with distance learning. Students and faculty meet nine times each year for four-day intensives (mid-day Thursday through mid-day Sunday) at IslandWood, a 250-acre LEED Gold environmental education center on Bainbridge Island, Washington. Between monthly intensives, students attend class online and engage with faculty, guest speakers and each other through multiple distance learning technologies. This design allows students from across the United States and Canada to participate in the Hybrid MBA program while continuing to live and work in their home communities.
