Student Learning Outcomes

Our Mission
To prepare innovative change agents who will harness the power of business and the natural environment to foster financial prosperity, ecosystem resilience, and human flourishing. 

Student Learning Outcomes
Principles for SB Student Learning Outcomes:

  • Student Learning Outcomes incorporate knowledge, skills, and attitudes.
  • All Student Learning Outcomes are assessable.
  • Student Learning Outcomes reflect the unique challenges posed by the aspiration for sustainability.

Sustainable Business students will learn to:

  1. Analyze and anticipate challenges and opportunities at the interface of nature, society, and business by deploying sustainability science knowledge and empathy
  2. Work collaboratively using systems thinking and innovation to identify sustainability pathways for businesses, organizations and communities
  3. Effectively align and engage ethical business strategy and practices with sustainability goals


In the fall of 2003, Aquinas College launched the nation's first undergraduate degree program in sustainable business, a non-traditional strategy that concurrently builds profitability and economic stability, restores the health of natural systems and promotes prosperous communities.
