Rising Leaders on Environmental Sustainability and Climate Change: A Global Survey of Business Students

A brief description of the innovative policy, practice, program, or outcome that outlines how credit criteria are met and any positive measurable outcomes associated with the innovation:

The Yale Center for Business and the Environment (CBEY) and the Yale Project on Climate Change Communication, in collaboration with the Global Network for Advanced Management and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, launched a global survey of more than 17,600 students at 29 business schools across five continents on business and environmental issues. Areas investigated included the students' knowledge about climate change and sustainability, how these issues will impact business, and impressions on how well business schools prepare students to navigate these issues. The study found that business students expect more integrated sustainability curricula and programming, and want aggressive leadership in this area from the companies they work in. This work was featured as a best practice initiative by the International Sustainable Campus Network in collaboration with the Global University Leaders Forum of the World Economic Forum.
