Corporate Knights released its 16th annual Better World MBA Ranking on 9 November 2018, revealing that the Copenhagen MBA features as #14 in the world when it comes to leading the way in responsible management education.  

“This ranking shows which business schools are stepping up to the plate to unleash the power of business as a force for good in our world”, said Toby Heaps, CEO of Corporate Knights Inc. “We applaud all of this year’s Top 40 Better World MBA school winners for their leadership.”

Responsible management and sustainable business practices are at the core of the Copenhagen MBA, which prides itself on being an MBA with a heart. Dedicated to educating and shaping the next generation of leaders, students embark on their MBA journey by taking a rigorous 50-hour core course in Managing Sustainable Corporations, taught by no other than the programme’s Associate Dean, Andreas Rasche.

“At CBS, our motto for a number of years has been ‘Business in Society’. For the Copenhagen MBA, this manifests itself as a core programme pillar dedicated to teaching responsible management that permeates the entire curriculum,” he said. “We introduce students to the latest business practices and research in the field, invite guest speakers and practitioners to the classroom and inspire lively debate based on cases, company visits and future scenarios.”

To determine the 2018 Top 40 Better World MBAs, Corporate Knights assessed 141 business schools across 25 countries. The ranking universe automatically included the top 100 schools on the most recent Financial Times Global MBA Ranking. Additionally, all business schools accredited by AMBA, AACSB and EQUIS, and all current champions in the United Nation’s Principles for Responsible Management Education Initiative were invited to participate.

The schools were graded on five indicators: the number of institutes and centres dedicated to sustainable development; the percentage of core courses that integrate sustainable development; faculty research publications and citations on sustainable development themes; and faculty gender and racial diversity.
