Transforming Business Schools’ Role in Sustainability: A Multi-Level Approach
Keywords: sustainability, transforming business education, mindset, curricula transformation, MacArthur Foundation, transforming business education
Abstract: There is a critical need for business schools to change dramatically if we are to educate business leaders to address the impending ecological and social disasters of global unsustainability and to appreciate the urgency of doing so. This symposium consists of three presentations of how this change can happen and is beginning to happen at the personal, course, and total curriculum levels—developing a sustainability mindset, creating a new textbook, and rethinking the entire curriculum—followed by the opportunity for vigorous comment and discussion to share insights and encourage partnering for action.
