Business schools waking up to CSR

Michael Jarvis's picture

Some business schools have offered courses on corporate responsiblity issues for several years, but the new report Corporate Responsibility and Education from Ethical Corporation shows how sustainability teaching is entering the mainstream. The quick survey of developments continent-by-continent still finds Europe leading the way in terms of integrating CSR into MBA programs, but others regions are catching up. Students have typically been ahead of faculty in requesting such training, but deans and faculty are increasingly seeing the value (or at least responding to demand.) At the World Bank Institute we have been encouraging curriculum development on CSR with business schools for 5 years so this report marks a welcome sign of progress.
