'Get an MBA, Save the World' Shows How Business Can Be 'Development'

Posted By Guy Pfeffermann, Thursday, April 26, 2012

In his recent article in Foreign Policy, Get an MBA Change the World, Charles Kenny highlights how good business can, and often does, also mean better lives for people in the developing world. For example, he argues that selling and educating people about soap helps keep them healthy, and also makes profits for Unilever. Therefore, he says, going to business school to work for an international business that can help make these improvements in quality of life and health is another path to working in "international development." He does acknowledge that there are some unfortunate examples of big business gone wrong, but his argument that successful corporations can improve the health and well-being of millions of people around the world strikes at the core of what we believe here at GBSN. Namely, that good management in business can and will lead to better lives and greater opportunity for the developing world.

Charles Kenny: "If you want to work in international development, go work for a big, bad multinational company."
