Publication Date: May, 2009
Paper Type: Non-thesis Undergraduate Student Research
This report is designed to review a variety of professional articles and academic journals in an attempt to give executives at business schools the groundwork to decide if including sustainability in education will prove worthwhile for the institution. By looking at the ideas of both advocates and critics on the top of sustainability in business and business education the report presents information that should help a school with its own decision process. The report then offers a review of current designs of programs that can serve as a basis for building future programs. Though the decision of whether to add sustainability into the curriculum is a significant one, it is not something that is simply decide and move forward. Each school must customize the implementation to meet the specific needs and capabilities of the individual university.
