Entrepreneur Magazine and Princeton Review call Drucker School tops for ‘green business’ education

The Drucker School of Management has been named by Entrepreneur Magazine as one of the best schools in the country for MBA students to get an education in environmentally friendly business fields.

Drucker is one of 16 graduate schools of business chosen by the magazine. The rankings appear in an article titled “A Sustainable Degree” in the magazine’s April 2011 issue.

For this project, Entrepreneur teamed with The Princeton Review, the education services company widely known for its test prep programs and “best” colleges and graduate schools lists.

The Princeton Review selected the schools based on the company’s survey of administrators at 325 graduate schools of business in 2009-2010 and of students attending the schools. Administrators were surveyed on their school’s academics, curricula, campus policies and student services related to sustainability, social responsibility and the environment. Students were polled on how well they felt their MBA programs were educating them for careers in “green business” fields.

The schools on the list are ordered alphabetically and were not individually ranked.

In selecting Drucker, the magazine cited the school’s special courses on sustainability as well as the 2009 victory of CGU students in the Net Impact Case Competition, which challenges students to come up with a sustainable plan for a real company.
