The Sustainable MBA: The 2010-2011 Guide to Socially Responsible MBA Programs


The Sustainable MBA features detailed information on over 150 leading MBA programs worldwide that incorporate environmental and social stewardship into their curricula. Compiled from data collected for Beyond Grey Pinstripes—the first survey and alternative ranking of business schools—the information was provided by school administrators, faculty, or deans. Each two page school profile has been carefully vetted by the experts at the Aspen Institute from over 80,000 pages of data and represents the most relevant sampling of each school's information.


The Sustainable MBA can be purchased in print form at here or digitally at here.


With this guide, prospective students can compare and contrast MBA programs that deal with social and environmental issues based upon:

  • required and elective courses
  • career resources
  • faculty research
  • concentrations and joint degree programs
  • student clubs and activities 
  • on-campus institutes and centers


For practitioners and academics in the field, we also recommend The Sustainable MBA as the most up-to-date guide on what leading institutions are focusing on within the field of business and society.
