Building Sustainability Research into the Academic Agenda
The 21st century poses a new set of challenges for today's students and tomorrow's leaders. Climate change, resource constraints, demographic shifts and the information revolution are transforming the way business is conducted and how investors value companies. Demand is growing fast for sustainability courses and programs that address environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues. Approximately 150 universities now offer sustainability courses as part of their Masters of Business Administration programs, according to the 2011 Beyond Grey Pinstripes survey conducted by the Aspen Institute Center for Business Education.
MSCI ESG Research is a leading global provider of ESG data, ratings and analysis. These tools are now also available to graduate university students and professors through the MSCI ESG Manager on Campus platform.
MSCI ESG Research invites you to listen to this recorded webinar exploring how academic institutions can leverage the ESG Manager on Campus platform to demonstrate the relevance of sustainability issues to students.
