Back To School

The Bean
Back to school I go. I am now a student at IIT Stuart School of Business with every intention of arming myself with a MBA in Environment & Enterprise Sustainability.

This is the only business school around here that has a strong environment focus. The school is located in downtown Chicago, which is perfect. Chicago is an environment conscious city. The Mayor's office promotes and supports many green initiatives. Green roofing is big here. I believe Stuart has in the past worked with the Mayor's office on green projects.

I now have an excuse to head over to this very vibrant city every week. In the hope that I can change businesses, make them a little greener and make the world a little better. Wish me luck!

Riot,

Thanks a ton for the link. Depressing though. The post has been updated. In fact i was looking out for such researched relationships.
