Net Impact, a nonprofit inspiring a new generation of students to work for a sustainable future, has released its 2013 edition of Business as UNusual: The Student Guide to Graduate Programs. Key findings suggest that social and environmental issues have become a mainstream necessity in MBA programs, driven in part by overwhelming student demand.
First published in 2006, Business as UNusual highlights student perspectives on over 100 business schools at the forefront of social and environmental innovation. The guide provides student ratings of their program’s integration of social and environmental themes into curricula, career services and student activities.
“More than 3,300 graduate students shared their perspectives on their schools in this year’s Business as UNusual Guide, and it’s clear that addressing social and environmental themes have become student ‘must-haves’ in competitive MBA curricula,“ says Liz Maw, CEO of Net Impact.
Findings from Business as Unusual 2013 include:
“We’re proud to be part of this movement of emerging leaders,” says Maw. “Students who are passionate about making an impact are demanding a new kind of education, one that allows them to use their career within and beyond business to tackle the toughest social and environmental problems of our time.”
The 2013 Net Impact Conference takes place October 24-26 in San Jose, CA.
