Does your company look specifically for candidates who have training in and awareness of CSR and sustainability-related issues when hiring?
In this generation alone, the MBA has shifted from a degree in profit-generation to something more complex – it’s about maximizing not only shareholder gain, but also social and environmental value. So wouldn’t companies stand to gain a lot by finding graduates from programs that know how to equip them to drive sustainable change, and more?
The 2013 Business as UNusual guide to graduate programs from Net Impact is a smart place to start.

Turns out, MBAs not only care about improving the world, but they want to make a career out of it. Students are demanding preparation for impact roles in their education, making them better poised than ever to tackle corporate impact once launched into the working world.
