Today Corporate Knights magazine released its 18th annual Better World MBA Ranking, which ranks global MBA programs on the degree to which sustainability and responsible management are integrated into the curriculum, research and activities at the business school. Carleton University’s MBA program at the Sprott School of Business earned a place on the prestigious top 40 list in the Better World MBA Ranking.
This was the first year the Sprott School of Business entered its MBA for the Better World Ranking.
“Every MBA should be a sustainable MBA, and the Better World business schools are showing us how,” said Toby Heaps, CEO of Corporate Knights.
To determine the ranking, Corporate Knights evaluated 150 business schools, including all of the 2020 Financial Timestop 100 Global MBA programs, every program that made the 2019 Top 40 in the Corporate Knights Better World MBA Ranking, and select MBA programs accredited by AMBA, AACSB or EQUIS, and/or signatories of the Principles for Responsible Management Education that opted in for evaluation.
Programs are evaluated across five key performance indicators: the number of sustainability-focused articles in peer-reviewed journals and citations, the number of core courses that incorporate sustainable development topics, research institutes and centres devoted to sustainable development issues and faculty gender and racial diversity in the business school.
