CBS Full-Time MBA 4th globally in Better World MBA ranking
Corporate Knights releases the 15th edition of the Better World MBA ranking. The ranking, which has been published annually since 2002, evaluates instruction and research in sustainability from a base universe of the top 100 schools on the Financial Times Global MBA rankings, and invites all other accredited MBA programs (AMBA, AACSB, EQUIS) to opt-in.
Eligible programs are assessed on the number of core courses, institutes and centres, and faculty research produced in the last three years related to sustainability, including corporate responsibility, human rights and ethics. This year, Corporate Knights evaluated 134 programs, 9% more than in 2016. Of these programs, 70.9% boast dedicated courses in the subject area for their MBA students.

“Businesses are re-orienting their strategies to align with the sustainable development goals for a fairer, greener planet. The top 40 ranked Better World MBA programs are training grounds for future business
leaders who want to be part of the monumental shift,” said Toby Heaps, CEO of Corporate Knights.
This year’s top ten is rounded out by Copenhagen Business School, Duquesne University, TIAS School for Business and Society, MIT Sloan School of Management, the University of Vermont Grossman
