Conflicting views and esoteric market explanations have affected current government and public opinions on environmental problems. This study will be an examination of the importance of educating future business leaders in the field of sustainable resources management by exposing them to an MBA curriculum which will have a significant impact on their future business decisions. Currently we find organizations advertising and claiming that they are following the green mantra, however, it may not necessarily be certain as to whether they are doing the best they can in reducing their carbon footprint. Present and future business decisions will have an impact on organizations from an economic, technological, and competitive perspective, underscoring the importance of a graduate curriculum grounded in the premise of sustainability and committed to the reduction of an organization's overall carbon footprint through the optimization of renewable resources on a global spectrum.
