Business schools have a key role to play in increasing sustainable practices in business, and in education.  Not only can sustainable practices strengthen your programs, they are something that top students are increasingly demanding.

There are many ways to incorporate sustainability into your management education program.  In this webinar, author and consultant Giselle Weybrecht will explain the role of management education in increasing sustainability and present best practice examples of how to embed sustainability into the student experience, from recruitment to operations to alumni relations.  Whether you are just starting out or are already fully committed to sustainability, this webinar will provide inspiration and practical ideas for how you can increase your attractiveness to top students, strengthen your program, and do the responsible thing for the environment and the world.
