MSB ranked 35th most socially responsible business school by Aspen Institute
The Aspen Institute recently released its biannual “Beyond Grey Pinstripes” ranking of business schools that do the best job of integrating social and environmental issues into their curriculum, and Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business came in a very respectable 35th.
The ranking is a significant improvement from our 2007 showing, when we came in 73rd. In 2005, the first year the Aspen Institute ranked business schools, we were 30th.
The rankings are based on four factors: how many courses that involve social, environmental or ethical concerns are offered; how much class time is spent on these issues; how many courses demonstrate the intersection of social or environmental issues with for-profit business; and how much faculty research is on social, environmental or ethical issues.
