The Aspen Institute, which ranks MBA programs for their commitment to teaching and researching socially and environmentally responsible business practices, is publishing a guidebook to its top MBA programs.
“The Aspen Institute Guide to Socially Responsible MBA Programs 2008-2009” (Berrett-Koehler Publishers) builds on the institute’s highly successful “Beyond Grey Pinstripes” ranking. It includes two-page profiles of 130 MBA programs. Each profile includes information on required and elective courses, faculty research, concentrations, joint degree programs, and clubs and activities that deal with social and environmental issues. Programs are designated as “truly extraordinary,” “excellent” or “good.”
The book will be available starting June 25. It's available as an electronic download at http://www.bkconnection.com ($14.95) or in print form from Amazon and through Berrett-Koehler ($37.95).
