The purpose of this study is to provide a concrete innovation on hew Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) is integrated into higher education using Advanced Educational Statistics as its platform. With this, university faculty, master's degree students and administrators can make appropriate strategies to become globally competitive and responsive to the sustainability mantra. A successful innovation has been developed, and found to be relevant and achievable. The key ingredient of this innovation is to utilize statistics as a platform of ESD fused with Multiple Intelligences (MI), Higher-Order Thinking Skills (HOTs) and latest technology. Moreover, this paper used a descriptive-correlation design, which identified the difficulties encountered by the master's degree students in making their innovations; then determined the relationship between the attitudes of students toward e-portfolio and their level of fusing ESD in statistics relative to: MI, HOTs and latest technology. Multiple regression analysis was utilized to predict its relationships. This innovation is highly appropriate for multi-disciplinary, international students. It connects ESD principles with practice as it enables university's effort to contribute to ESD. This paper is supported by the actual, students' output which can be found in the website (http://statisticsforndmu.blogspot.com/).
