Nottingham in global top 40 for responsible business education
The Better World MBA ranking 2016
The only major global ranking to evaluate accredited MBA programmes on their integration of sustainability into the education of future business leaders has rated Nottingham University Business School very highly in its latest edition.
Nottingham places 12th overall and 2nd in the UK in the 2016 global top 100 Better World MBA ranking.
Dean of Nottingham University Business School, Professor Alistair Bruce, said: “We have long been recognised as one of the world's top business schools for the quality of our teaching and research in responsible and sustainable business. We take seriously our duty to educate all our students to develop a broader ethical and societal perspective on business practices and finance and we integrate these issues into the Nottingham MBA, so I am delighted that we have performed so well in this important ranking.”
Produced by media and research company, Corporate Knights, who have carried out similar assessments for many years, the 14th Better World MBA ranking concentrates on evaluating three aspects of a business school's strength with regards to sustainable business:
Students’ opportunities to get to grips with sustainability issues in an MBA programme’s core curriculum, faculty publications and expertise in the area and the number of associated research centres linked to a particular business school.
To encourage students to develop an understanding of responsible and sustainable business practices, the Nottingham MBA includes all its students in a Sustainable Decisions and Organisations course. Students take part in a series of case studies, role play, and interviews by boards of practitioners and journalists to challenge them to develop a sustainable business strategy and integrate the various core disciplines from the programme.
The Better World MBA ranking evaluates the top 100 programmes on the 2016 FT Global MBA ranking, and invites all other accredited (AMBA, AACSB, EQUIS) programmes to take part.
This year, Corporate Knights evaluated 123 programmes in total.
