Sustainability Conference

Global challenges demand much from today's managers and organizations. How are business schools addressing these needs in their research, education, and outreach? Can they do more to be catalysts of positive social change and impact?

By addressing global challenges and equipping students with essential knowledge, skills, and values, business schools prepare future managers to make a lasting, positive impact on global economic development and the well-being of society. Learn from thought leaders and business schools that make the role of business in society a priority, and contribute to an emerging vision about what your role should be in addressing society's grand challenges.

Revealing new strategies and best practices, the Sustainability Conference explores b-school efforts to better local and global communities, and serves as a forum to engage in discussions about fostering social impact. Join a diverse group of experts and educators to discuss how your school, and management education more broadly, can directly contribute to enhancing the sustainable development of society.
