The USGBC certified the Knight Management Center at the Stanford Graduate School of Business as LEED Platinum, the highest rating for environmental sustainability.

The Knight Management Center opened in April 2011 as a new home for the school’s MBA curriculum and other programs, and as a physical space intended to both bring students together from across Stanford University’s seven schools for interdisciplinary learning and demonstrate the Graduate School of Business’ commitment to environmental leadership.

Filled with natural light and the latest technology, the 360,000-sf facility underscores what is taught in many of the school’s electives such as Environmental Entrepreneurship and Environmental Science for Managers and Policy Makers, as well as in core classes covering sustainability across the functions of business, and in its MBA/MS Environment and Resources joint-degree program.
