Overview

The Aspen Institute, a premier non-profit, research organization for corporate social responsibility, offers the first comprehensive guide to the world's leading global MBA programs in CSR—an indispensable guide for prospective students, universities, hiring companies, and libraries.

This guide provides an overview of how global MBA programs bring social impact management into their curricular and extracurricular programs. Social impact management, which includes environmental, ethical, and corporate governance issues, is the field of inquiry at the intersection of business needs and wider societal concerns that reflects their complex interdependency. Without an understanding of this interdependency, neither business nor the society in which it operates can thrive.

    Want to see how business schools are changing the landscape of management education? The new book 'The Aspen Institute Guide to Socially Responsible MBA Programs: 2008-2009' has the answers. It is a detailed, easy-to-access review of leading business programs around the globe which are seeking to build a different kind of MBA product. As a college business school faculty member, I can say this is a real gem. One of the most impressive aspects of this survey is that it contains business school reports on some 111 institutions which have over 340 centers that focus on social responsibility. Approximately 2,500 innovative courses now operate among these leading universities. Some 130 hold MBA student competitions on such topics as sustainability, social entrepreneurship, and global impact management. They have facilitated the creation of more than 300 student clubs that focus on these topics. In addition, nearly 3,000 professors are listed who have researched efforts in ethical, social, and/or environmental themes. Steve Piersanti, founder of Berrett-Koehler, Pub., has long promoted a better corporate environment by printing books that integrate both social and financial missions. Aspen¿s Center for Business Education collaborated with Beyond Grey Pinstripes in collecting the data for this volume by surveying more than a hundred schools in 20 countries. The core question in the survey centers on business school innovations regarding ¿social impact management,¿ i.e. MBA programs that analyze progressive corporate policies, governance systems, environmental stewardship, managerial ethics, and community responsibilities. Perhaps the most illuminating thing to me is the little surprises in the book. I¿m a MBA professor at BYU who has long taught corporate social responsibility and ethics, and more recently developed new courses on sustainability and social entrepreneurship. So I expected the big names would be in these listings¿Michigan, Yale, INSEAD, Stanford, Duke, Harvard, and Cornell. But I didn¿t know about small, innovative jewels such as the University of Denver, Chapman University, and international schools like Bogota¿s Universidad de Los Andes, Fundacao Getulio Vargas in Brazil, and the S.P. Jain Institute in Mumbai, India. My prediction is that a new awareness of these listings, now in book form, will foster more widespread student access to these pioneering MBA programs, and that the featured schools will have increased potential for encouraging other institutions to follow suit. --Dr. Warner Woodworth, Marriott School, Brigham Young University, Provo, Utah
