The MS One Planet Leadership program embraces the call for embedding sustainability principles into leadership graduate education, while challenging students to explore the complex task of creating and leading learning organizations that maximize employee well-being, social responsibility, and performance excellence — the triple bottom line or People, Planet, and Profit.


It is estimated that the planet’s population will increase from 6.7 to 9 billion in the next 30 years, and that we are currently depleting the world’s resources 1.5-2 times faster than they can be replenished by nature. 

This is clearly unsustainable, which has given rise to a growing consensus that current business and leadership models based on unbridled growth and consumerism in the pursuit of maximizing profits to the detriment of employees, society, and the environment are untenable, and that solutions for a sustainable, flourishing world require a new leadership paradigm for building the kind of world we want to live in and that we want our children and grandchildren to inherit.

As a MS One Planet Leadership student from One Planet Leadership, you will cultivate the leadership and management skills essential for sustainable business development and operations. 

Our emphasis on taking action through global awareness, cross-cultural sensitivity, strong communication skills, creativity and innovative problem-solving, the creation and maintenance of collaborative partnership and productive teams, and the enactment and support of socially responsible behavior will equip you to become a self-aware, sustainability-conscious leader prepared to address the critical economic, social, and environmental issues facing today's organizations.
