GLRPPR Sector Resource: Business as UNusual 2013
Business as UNusual 2013
Demand for environmental and social-themed curriculum has become a mainstream necessity in MBA programs, and the latest innovation is primarily student-driven.
These results and more are found in the 2013 edition of "Business as UNusual: The Student Guide to Graduate Programs." This insider's guide by students for students was released this week, and findings from 3,300+ student surveys show:
-- Sustainability is now a "must-have" for graduate curriculum, and students want to integrate these values into their careers -- to the point where 85 percent would take a 15 percent pay cut to work for an organization whose values match their own.
-- Students are behind much of the transformation in MBA programs; from the 100+ school profiles surveyed this year, over 50 schools report having adjusted curriculum to incorporate social and environmental issues in courses, certificates, experiential learning opportunities because of student demand.
-- Impact career support and sustainability experiential learning are the two biggest points of opportunities for MBA programming going forward, with one-third of respondents highlighting this as an area that needs work.
The guide contains useful information and ratings on how dozens of graduate business programs address social and environmental issues.
