ANAHEIM, CA, Jun 04 (MARKET WIRE) -- California-based Anaheim University once again turns heads with its launch of the Online Green MBA, a uniquely designed academic program focusing on People, Planet and Profit. This pioneering program advocates success through financial, social and environmental responsibility. "We have reached a time in history where corporations must take a serious look at the impact they are having on the environment and take action to reverse the damage that is being caused by industry. Corporate Social Responsibility [CSR] departments must be accountable for their company's well being, the community and the global environment," stated Dr. William Hartley, President of Anaheim University. The Online Green MBA is an interdisciplinary program. Six of its core management courses come from the Anaheim University Akio Morita School of Business, named in honor of the late Sony Founder who advocated corporate social responsibility, and six sustainable management courses are offered through the Anaheim University Kisho Kurokawa Green Institute, conceived by and named after the University's founding board member and world-renowned eco-minded architect. Kisho Kurokawa advocated sustainable practices since the 1950s and the Green Institute was his last contribution to sustainability before his passing in 2007. According to the Dean of the Akio Morita School of Business Andrew Honeycutt, who earned his Doctorate in Business Administration at Harvard Business School, "This is the era of the online University. The Online Green MBA stands for everything we believe in. Our University was built with the environment in mind taking into consideration the potential for reduction in CO2 emissions and preservation of natural resources such as petroleum by eliminating the need for travel to and from campus. Campus-based universities use a tremendous amount of natural resources for the construction of buildings and the heating and cooling of classrooms. We carry out the entire educational process online, educating students worldwide while using less natural resources than is required for parking enforcement alone on a traditional campus. By practicing what we teach, we hope to inspire our students to create innovative solutions to globalenvironmental and social problems."
