Bainbridge Graduate Institute
Alex Steffen, 27 May 05

Here's a profile of what some people think is the most worldchanging of business schools, the Seattle-area Bainbridge Graduate Institute (which we also covered here and here):

Their goal is to give students skills to change the way business is done and prepare them to lead companies pursuing sustainable development. "We have an opportunity to solve the world's major problems," Pinchot says. "Business is the dominant institution of our time. It's the biggest leverage point."

...Few of the students at BGI have undergraduate business degrees. Their average age is 35, and more than half are women. Three times each term, they meet at the IslandWood campus and stay for three days of workshops. The rest of the time, they study online.

IslandWood, an outdoor education center created by Aldus software founder Paul Brainerd and his wife, is a model of green architecture, with recycled materials and solar-heated water. It includes 255 acres of forest with trails, streams and abundant wildlife.

You should also be aware of the New College of California's Green MBA program. (www.greenmba.com) It is excellent.
