UO scored well in two "green" MBA measures.

The University of Oregon's Lundquist College of Business landed two solid standings in a new ranking of sustainability-oriented MBA programs.

The school ranked second in the U.S. and ninth worldwide in a new ranking of the "Top 30 Global Green MBA schools" by the Canadian business magazine Corporate Knights.

Another magazine list, which gauged 10 small MBA programs, ranked the school third worldwide and second in the U.S.

"For three decades, the Lundquist College of Business has been preparing students to go out and make a difference implementing green business practices across organizations of all sizes," said Rebecca Monro, assistant dean for the UO's MBA program, in a release. "We think this is what sets our program apart."

The magazine ranked the MBA programs in terms of how the schools integrate sustainability into their curricula. The top schools encourage grads to do work in the nonprofit sector and to promote sustainability through various activities and initiatives.

The Lundquist program was praised for its Center for Sustainable Business Practices, which encourages students to integrate sustainability into advanced business strategies.
