Today, the Corporate Knights magazine released their 19th annual Better World MBA Ranking, and – for the second year in a row – the MBA program at Carleton University’s Sprott School of Business earned a place on the prestigious top 40 list.
The ranking assesses MBA programs around the world on the degree to which sustainability and responsible management are integrated into their curriculum, research and other activities within the school.
“Every MBA program in the world should be instilling holistic purpose in leaders, ensuring they have the skills, tools and values to build a more inclusive, healthier economy that’s beneficial to society and in harmony with the natural world, and the Better World business schools are leading the way,” said Toby Heaps, CEO of Corporate Knights.
To determine the ranking, Corporate Knights evaluated 147 programs – including the 2021 Financial Times’ 100 Global MBA programs, every program that made the top 40 last year, select MBA programs accredited by AMBA, AACSB or EQUIS, and signatories of the Principles for Responsible Management Education that opted in for evaluation.
The programs were evaluated across key performance indicators, including: core course integration of sustainability, research publications per faculty member on sustainability topics in 2020, per cent of total faculty publications in 2020 on sustainability topics, number of citations per faculty for those publications, sustainability-focused research institutes and centres, faculty gender diversity and faculty racial diversity.
The Sprott MBA prepares students to lead with purpose and make a difference in a changing global context. The program features an integrated set of core courses that introduce strategic business concepts and address sustainability, responsible leadership, global awareness and entrepreneurship. Active learning is emphasized throughout the program and during the summer term, students have to opportunity to participate in an internship, consulting project or entrepreneurship.
