The mission of the Management Department at MIU is to develop business leaders and professionals with the awareness, knowledge, and practical skills to create sustainable, value-producing, and life-supporting rewards and benefits for themselves, their stakeholders, and the natural environment.
By helping our students develop in these ways, we prepare them to be successful in a dynamic, ever-changing business environment.
Grow sustainable businesses
In response to worldwide challenges for new leadership in business, we have developed a program that teaches the technical skills, decision-making abilities, and leadership capabilities required for success in modern business.
By learning about concepts like the Triple Bottom Line and incorporating sustainability practices into your business education, you’ll learn how to create green businesses that are positive, growth-promoting, and environmentally and socially conscious.
Start developing your business while earning your degree
Our BA program helps turn students into business leaders. We do this by combining traditional and sustainable business concepts with MIU’s new Concept to Market Institute, an embedded business incubator capstone program that helps students develop their own product and take it to market. In this program, you will:
- Develop an innovative product or service through our low-stress program, which features one full-time course per month, meditation, a healthy lifestyle, and more
- Design each element of your business launch, from product development and manufacturing to ad design and creative implementation, with personal guidance from experts in business, marketing and advertising
- Connect to experienced advisors and potential investors who will help you through the funding process to get your business running
