Presidio Graduate School Ranks At Top In Net Impact Student Survey

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Presidio Graduate School earned the #1 ranking for sustainability in the 2013 Business as UNusual: A Student Guide to Graduate Programs published by Net Impact, a leading nonprofit that inspires a new generation to work for a sustainable future. Presidio Graduate School also scored near the top in the category of social impact, tied at #3 with Yale University.

The rankings in the annual guide are based on a Net Impact survey of more than 3,300 students at more than 100 business schools around the world at the forefront of social and environmental innovation. Survey participants were asked to assess their own programs on a 1 to 5 scale, with 5 the highest rating. Students gave Presidio Graduate School a rating of 4.87 in sustainability and 4.58 in social impact.

"Our Net Impact ranking is a testament to the quality and influence of our educational model, which integrates sustainability throughout our curriculum and student experience," says Presidio Graduate School President and CEO William Shutkin. "We imagine that one day all management programs—and all education, for that matter—will offer fully integrated curricula where sustainability principles and frameworks are the bedrock."

Presidio Graduate School has also been named a Net Impact Gold Chapter for the past four years. A Gold Chapter exceeds Net Impact's requirements for participation, programming and community impact and is the highest possible status for a chapter in Net Impact's global network of more than 40,000 student and professional members and more than 300 chapters.

According to Net Impact CEO Liz Maw, "Students who are passionate about making an impact are demanding a new kind of education, one that allows them to use their career within and beyond business to tackle the toughest social and environmental issues of our time."
