Now more than ever, global business leaders must be prepared to tackle complex managerial challenges driven by energy and environment issues. At Fuqua School of Business, the next generation of business leaders is learning how to rise to these challenges. Duke MBAs are reinventing business in a way that envisions energy and environmental sustainability issues as opportunities for strategic business advantage.

Understanding the dynamics of the new energy economy and achieving corporate sustainability requires managers who understand, anticipate, and act on energy and environmental challenges in innovative ways. Through curriculum, experiential learning projects, extracurricular and enrichment opportunities, and career development initiatives, Fuqua prepares managers to lead in this new business context.
