Our Programs


MBArk now offers several programs throughout the year to help connect business education to the natural products industry.

 

  • MBArk Core Program at Expo West (March, Anaheim, CA) – a gathering of MBA and grad students at the natural products industry’s largest event, featuring networking, educational sessions, the MBArk CEO Breakfast, and the Natural Talent Career Fair.

 

 

  • Food Industry Executive Leadership Development (FIELD) Program (June, Boulder) – an executive education certificate program for mid-career executives who want to advance their careers through MBA skills training and networking, run in partnership with the University of Colorado Boulder’s Leeds School of Business.

 

  • MBArk Core Program at Expo East (September, Baltimore, MD) – slightly smaller than our Anaheim Core Program, with networking, educational sessions, the MBArk CEO Breakfast, and live consulting case studies.

 

 

  • MBArk2Boulder Food Leadership Conference (January, Boulder) – the premier educational and networking event for MBAs, grad students, undergrads and recent grads interested in the natural products industry – like a Net Impact Conference, TEDx talk, and natural products expo all rolled into one.  Includes sessions, field trip, Natural Talent Career Fair and networking.
