We provide students with business mastery for application in creative, social, environmental and triple bottom line organizations.

Academic Requirements:Courses are conducted both online and in a low-residency format face-to-face, reaching an international audience and allowing you to work and pursue the degree regardless of your location. In addition, our limited residency sessions will provide face-to-face interaction and fieldwork with faculty and other students in the program twice a year in January and late July.

Students build a portfolio of work that draws on their management courses as well as from their choice of coursework from Goucher's other professional master's degree programs, including cultural sustainability, digital arts, or environmental studies. This work culminates in a capstone project that reflects the students' business acumen applied to a specific context.
