Meridian University

Social Media

At Meridian University the term creative enterprise is used to embrace pioneering actions, or next practices, that enable enterprises of many forms to blend financial viability with transformative innovation.

Creative enterprise takes place in domains of action within which transformative change can be catalyzed to more effectively address critical needs of our time. Needs such as ecological responsibility, community building, right livelihood, personal empowerment, and business ethics.

The Creative Enterprise MBA at Meridian is centered at the intersection of three primary emphases:

  • Transformative Innovation
  • Business and Social Entrepreneurship
  • Applied Wisdom and Sustainability

These emphases inform and infuse every course in the Meridian MBA curriculum, so understanding what we mean by each reveals the education we deliver.

Transformative Innovation delivers solutions fundamentally superior to those currently available to meet the deepest needs of individuals or society. Such innovations are fueled by visionary shifts in thinking, new business models, cooperative alliances, entrepreneurial insight and persistence. We aim to cultivate entrepreneurs and executives capable of imagining transformative innovations then making them happen.

Meridian’s second core area of emphasis is Business and Social Entrepreneurship. This supports our MBAs in launching or running a viable business, non-profit, or hybrid organization that results in positive social outcomes. These outcomes can spring from business innovation in a range of areas including policy and governance, organizational structure, and product or service evolution. Positive outcomes can also be derived via social creativity, such as building unique coalitions that blend efforts of private business, citizens, government, education, NGO’s, and other organizations.

The third area of emphasis within the Creative Enterprise MBA is Applied Wisdom and Sustainability. A meaningful understanding of sustainability and green principles of conducting business are now requirements for any creative enterprise. At Meridian we pay close attention to deepening the process of integrating this foundation into all of our thinking.

The Creative Enterprise MBA integrates perspectives from the major wisdom and spiritual traditions, neuroscience, and deep ecology to explore possibilities for how wisdom can be applied in social entrepreneurship and executive action. The program promotes no particular school of wisdom, but present a banquet of offerings from which you choose what empowers you most, grounding your actions in a context of being connected to a larger universe.

Diverse Learning Formats
Meridian MBA students spend half of their class time in sessions at Meridian’s San Francisco Center, located within the Hub SoMa inside the San Francisco Chronicle building. The Hub is an international network of workspaces and communication platforms for engaged social entrepreneurs. Class sessions at our San Francisco Center foster student interaction with social entrepreneurs acting at the “intersection of money and meaning”.

MBA students spend the other half of their class time at Meridian’s scenic campus in the hilltops of Marin County, 25 miles north of San Francisco, providing a more contemplative view.

Our MBA program utilizes Learning Communities and is offered in two learning formats: monthly weekends or hybrid online. The blended online format substitutes internet based learning for weekend sessions. Both formats include immersion learning during two weeklong sessions spent in residence each academic year.

Now accepting applications for Fall 2012.
