Costa Rica´s University for Peace announced a new master´s program designed as an MBA for sustainable development professionals.

The United Nations-charted university near Ciudad Colón, west of San José, will launch the M.A. Program on Responsible Management and Sustainable Economic Development in September, UPEACE said in a press release.
