  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."
