MBA-MES Joint Degree

Wharton is pleased to offer a program that combines a Master of Business Administration (MBA) and Master of Environmental Studies (MES).

This joint degree complements and enhances Wharton’s multi-disciplinary approach to integrating knowledge and advancing educational goals in the business and environment sectors. The MBA/MES program expands the range of skills and knowledge that Wharton students can develop in the field of environmental management. The MES Program is offered through the College of Liberal and Professional Studies (LPS) within the School of Arts and Sciences.

The multi-disciplinary nature of the MES curriculum exposes Wharton students to faculty and students with similar interests in environmentally related topics throughout the Penn community. The capstone component for the joint MBA/MES degree gives students the opportunity to participate in research initiatives in a concentrated field of study. Students will be at Wharton for three semesters and LPS for two semesters plus a summer capstone course. This program is very flexible to meet students’ needs and individual interests. Students can start MES coursework the summer prior to starting the MBA, take courses over the summer while conducting an internship, and various other options. Students can also take advantage of interesting courses throughout the university, such as from the Engineering School, the Design School, and others.
