Student Involvement in TIP-India:
India Student Attitudes Survey and Essay Competition

We are planning to conduct a business school student attitudes survey on sustainability (social, environmental and ethical issues) in India.  This survey will be similar to previous surveys we have conducted in the U.S./Canada/Western Europe and China (http://www.aspencbe.org/teaching/Student_Attitudes.html). 

We will ask students provocative questions such as:

·  What do you believe are the primary responsibilities of a company?

·  How do you think companies benefit from fulfilling their social responsibilities?

·  How will you react if your values conflict with those of the company where you work?
In an effort to encourage student involvement in the TIP-India program, we will be holding an essay competition around a topic in sustainability (to be determined).  Two student winners of the competition will be brought to Goa to participate in the next TIP-India convening (December 11-12, 2009). 
More information on both the student attitudes survey and the essay competition to follow.

TIP-India Academic
Visits Aspen in New York

Our colleagues at The Aspen Institute in New York recently enjoyed a luncheon with one of
the professors involved in the TIP-India program - Raghu Ram Tata, Professor at XLRI in Jamshedpur.  We got to learn more about Raghu's work, which explores environmental
governance; policy; sustainable
development business interface.  Raghu is working on developing
India-specific cases with teaching notes which touch on sustainable land acquisition and inclusive
development models in the mining industry.
Please let us know if you have plans to be in the New York area - we would love to host others working on integrating sustainability - social, environmental and ethical issues - into mainstream business education.



Join us for a lively discussion on INDIA - Friday, November 6th in NYC!

If you plan to be in New York City on Friday, November 6th, we hope you'll join us for our Beyond Grey Pinstripes (alternative business school rankings based on social, environmental and ethical criteria) and Faculty Pioneer Awards breakfast celebration.  Immediately following the breakfast, we are hosting a break-out session on India.
Please join us for a lively discussion on INDIA!  India is a hot topic on everyone's mind these days but the Aspen Institute is particularly interested because of our Teaching Innovation Program (TIP) in India.  TIP-India is a vibrant network comprised of business schools and leading corporate partners all working toward the goal of integrating sustainability into mainstream MBA curriculum in India.  Come share your thoughts on salient topics in India today with others who share this common interest.
