Net Impact’s 2008 Business as UNusual Guide Out Now

Net Impact has always been one of my favorite “green” business organizations and their annual conference has been a highlight of many years. The organization is particularly great for MBA students or other young people who are just getting started in the arena of socially and environmentally responsible business.
Business as UNusual is an annual Net Impact publication that provides a student perspective on how different business school programs address corporate social responsibility issues. It also provides rankings that help compare programs across key criteria such as the inclusion of social and environmental themes in school curriculum and the strength of alumni networks in this emerging field – all based on various student surveys.
The 2008 edition provides what Net Impact calls “the most comprehensive overview of graduate programs to date, with profiles of over 60 global schools”. Also included is an updated section that features school standouts in individual categories such as administrative support of Net Impact themes in the curriculum, and student involvement in Net Impact activities.
So, whether you are thinking about applying to business school or you would like to see how your school compares to other programs, check out Business as UNusual: The 2008 Net Impact Student Guide to Graduate Business Programs.
