This program will allow students to develop an understanding of the relationship between business and biology, particularly how natural resources are used for business. We will explore how business practices and biological technology shape, impact, and are influenced by natural resource limitations and policies. Our emphasis will be on the Western United States, with a particular focus on how watershed resources are utilized directly or indirectly for business. The program includes fundamental work in entrepreneurship, ecotourism, sustainability, energy, water use, and biology. Students leaving this program will be better equipped to understand how a successful business operates, and how to work within the constraints imposed by competition, government, and limited natural resources. In addition, students will gain an understanding about sustainable alternatives to existing infrastructure.
