Environmental changes occurring throughout the Arctic and particularly in Alaska’s oceans, coasts, and inland waters present significant challenges and opportunities to a broad range of businesses and the global economy. To meet these challenges, there is a growing demand for leaders with the combined skills of business and science, particularly in fisheries, oceanography, and climate science and policy.
The UAF Blue MBA is particularly beneficial for individuals interested in developing a more sustainable use of Alaskan and Arctic natural resources and industries, including the following:
- Fisheries and Aquatic Resources
- Energy and Offshore Development
- Maritime Domain Awareness
- Tourism and Marine Navigation
This new degree program is designed primarily for students with a STEM baccalaureate degree. Interested applicants are encouraged to contact the School of Management to enroll and obtain more information regarding preparation and prerequisite training.
