Ivey MBA among the global leaders for integrating sustainability

The Ivey MBA program has been included in the Top 25 globally for integrating sustainability and corporate responsibility, according to the 2020 Better World MBA Rankings published by Corporate Knights magazine.

The Better World MBA Ranking evaluates business schools drawn primarily from the most recent Financial Times list of Top 100 Global MBA programs. The evaluation criteria includes integration of sustainability into core course curriculum, faculty research and citations in sustainability, as well as faculty gender and racial diversity.

Ivey has been a longstanding leader in integrating sustainability considerations into the curriculum. The Ivey MBA includes the ‘Prospering for the Long-Term’ course, which has won the Aspen Institute’s prestigious Ideas Worth Teaching Award. This course, led by Ivey Professor Tima Bansal, discusses the long-term and societal implications of core business topics in the MBA program through an innovative co-teaching design.

Noah McColl, MBA '21 candidate and Vice President, Ivey MBA Social Impact & Sustainability Club, said "It is great to see Ivey recognized as a leader in sustainability. As a leading business school in Canada, it is important for us to think beyond internal indicators of success and learn how businesses succeed in the long-term by prioritizing the well-being of broader society. Ivey's thought leadership in sustainable thinking makes us optimistic about the potential of our community to create positive change, both within Ivey and beyond".
