EFMD Insights into Sustainability and Social Responsibility
Edited by: John Peters and Matthew Wood. This collection is one of a number drawn from EFMD's Global Focus magazine, published in the past few years, and selected to present insights into sustainability and social responsibility. Our selection begins with a number of studies about the MBA. The Master of Business Administration degree has been roundly criticised in recent years for developing graduates adept in finance and economics but without inculcating morality or a view of business in society. Some of the bodies which have arisen to help business education get to grips with sustainable business education include the Globally Responsible Leadership Initiative, 50+20, the UN Global Compact and the Drucker Society, are featured to follow. Some further explorations of business schools in society, and some ideas for teaching social responsibility, follow a study of the landmark enterprise Grameen Bank, and Bruce Jenks' exploration of the business opportunities at the 'bottom of the pyramid' for and with the world's poorest people. In all, more than 30 short studies give a fascinating mosaic of sustainability and social responsibility in today's world.
