The MBA is the result of two converging realities:
On one hand, the long-established prestige of Deusto in the education of the most representative corporate leaders in Spain today due to its rigorous approach to the fundamentals of management.

Deusto MBA delivers a unique experience to participants through its approach and methodology. The differential nature of the program is encapsulated in four specific features of the curriculum:
1. The Approach to Sustainability:
The Deusto MBA program focuses on sustainable business. The approach to sustainability, therefore, is embedded in all areas of business: Economic Environment, Strategy, Finance and Accounting, Marketing, Entrepreneurship, Organizational Development and Human Capital, Operations, and Management Control. The integration of sustainability within the business strategy involves many transformations that take place at the different level where business firms acts , which are all covered in the Deusto MBA. It focuses on a relational approach from the individual and collective leadership to the political role played by firms at the global governance:
The individual sustainable leadership, the impact of individual decision-making process into organizational change, requiring managers and leaders to develop new skills and knowledge such as a deeper comprehension of societal challenges, a broader approach of the company productivity and growth and the capacity to work in collaboration across profit and nonprofit spheres.
The collective sustainable business change, reconceiving sustainable products and services embedding environmental, social and governance concerns as key innovative processes, and the recognition that new business models are emerging embedding sustainability and shared value as a key driver for sustainable growth and competitiveness.
The embedding of sustainability into the Organizational strategy, creating shared value and reconceiving the intersection between society and corporate performance, meeting society's broader challenges and reconnecting business success with sustainable growth ad societal progress and social justice
The Sustainable global supply chain, how shared value strategies connects through technology and social innovation improving efficiency, creating sustainable jobs and building social and economic wealth throughout the global supply chains.
The networked governance model: the changing political role played by business firms at the sphere of global governance becoming a key reference for international principles and the meeting of global environmental, social and governance challenges through the growing interconnection of global sustainable business standards and multi-stakeholder initiatives
Therefore, sustainable businesses and committed managers would become global leaders and relevant actors who are capable of solving the pending problems on the global agenda allowing companies to growth creating economic value and at the same time creating societal and environmental value and leading social innovation and corporate accountability. These new businesses may take up new roles and will become part of the sustainable global supply chain. Other dynamic capabilities and sustainable policies, practices, behaviors, and methods may emerge. Finally, the concept of leadership will also be closely connected with that of sustainability principles and behaviours.
