“Green MBAs Aim To Balance Profit, Planet” says an article in the US & World News Report.
The article quotes Rich Leimsider, Director of the Center for Business Education at the Center for Business Education at The Aspen Institute, as saying the move to balance economy and ecology is showing up all over. The Aspen Institute is an international nonprofit organization dedicated to fostering enlightened leadership and open-minded dialogue.
MBA programs are adding social and environmental issues to their courses. Schools which are ahead in such initiatives include Stanford, Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business and Dominican University of California.
In its biennial report “Beyond Grey Pinstripes”, World Resources Institute, and the Aspen Institute identified the Stanford Graduate School of Business as the leader among business schools that are incorporating academic content involving ethics, corporate social responsibility, and environmental sustainability into their curriculums and activities. The ranking was based on an extensive survey in which schools were asked to describe cases, research, and course content that address these issues.
