The Monterey Institute’s Fisher Graduate School of International Business is profiled by the Aspen Institute in their recently published Guide to Socially Responsible MBA Programs: 2008-2009. The Fisher School is currently ranked 40th among the Global Top 100 schools for demonstrating significant leadership in integrating social and environmental issues into its MBA curriculum.
Since 2003, the Fisher School has been consistently ranked as a socially responsible MBA program by Beyond Grey Pinstripes, a biennial research survey that examines how effectively social and environmental issues are incorporated into the training of future business leaders. This year the Aspen Institute Center for Business Education published the data from the 2007 Beyond Grey Pinstripes survey for the first time ever in a guide marketed to both prospective MBA students and the business education community at large.
Invitations to participate in the 2007 survey were sent out to over 600 internationally accredited business schools with in-residence, full-time MBA programs. The Fisher School ranked 40th overall in the survey, and received special recognition for Course Content (13th), Student Opportunity (26th) and Student Exposure (35th).
According to The Aspen Institute Center for Business Education, The Fisher School “….offers an excellent number of courses featuring relevant content, and does a truly extraordinary job in those courses explicitly addressing how mainstream business improves the world.”
