A Green Education

It’s not just about the engineering, life sciences, arts, law, medicine, etc. programs anymore, today more post-secondary schools are offering ‘green’ education programs. From the technical college programs, to the theoretical undergraduate courses to the more advanced graduate programs more schools are capturing the growing ‘green’ economy. But of course, you have to offer the programs where the jobs are going to be.

A Green MBA

As the world becomes more educated it is becoming more common place for individuals to pursue a post-graduate degree. As we all try to ‘out-do’ one and other more people are opting to pursue and MBA degree. Although having a masters this day may be seen as ‘a-dime-a-dozen’ I was always raised to believe that learning is of utmost importance and continuous and that if it something one wants to do than they should do it!

In keeping pace with the changing job economy I was impressed to see that schools are now offering ‘green’ MBAs’. Here are some of the options:

The list isn’t bottomless, but there are quite a few options. A short list of others can be found here. In an attempt to keeping up with the changing curriculum many schools are adding ‘green’ and ‘sustainable’ courses all the time.

Preparing for Other designations

Some North American colleges and universities are now offering courses that prepare students to write their LEEDs (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design). LEED is ever evolving, and will soon have 6 Rating Systems: Commercial Interiors, Core & Shell, New Construction, School & Health Care, Existing Building Operations & Maintenance, and soon to be Neighbourhood Development.

The accreditation’s and programs are adapting to meet the needs of our more sustainable future. As I continue on my quest to write the LEED AP exam this summer I’m continuously dreaming up things I would like to do to my home!
