Anderson noted for social impact

The Anderson Schools of Management were among 15 schools worldwide recognized as “showing significant activities in social impact management” in the 2003 Beyond Grey Pinstripes report.

In the study, six MBA programs, including George Washington University, Michigan, North Carolina, Stanford, Yale and York (Toronto, Canada), were named as “Programs at the Cutting Edge.”
Nine programs, including UNM, Calgary (Canada), Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, ITESM (Monterrey, Mexico), Pennsylvania, UC-Berkeley and Virginia, were named “Programs Showing Significant Activities.” Another 21 schools were recognized for “Moderate Activity.”

According to the report, UNM’s greatest strength is “Inside the Classroom.” The Marketing Management program was cited for incorporating topics such as social and green marketing, consumer protection and global citizenship.

The Beyond Grey Pinstripes report, prepared by the World Resources Institute and The Aspen Institute Initiative for Social Innovation through Business, honors MBA programs that infuse environmental and social impact management into the classroom, activities and faculty research.

The biennial survey of master’s degree programs in business administration assesses to what extent MBA programs prepare graduates for social and environmental stewardship in their careers.

The 2003 survey covers the 2001-02 and 2002-03 academic years and includes data from more than 100 business schools in 20 countries.

UNM was one of 16 schools honored in 2001.

The survey gathers data in three areas including institutional support, coursework and faculty. Comparisons were made on the basis of accomplishments across domains, rather than excellence in one category or the other.
