Five ways business schools can overcome siloed approaches to sustainability: Opinion

In an article for Times Higher Education, Alison Taylor (New York University) argues that business schools must move away from a siloed approach to sustainability in favour of meaningfully incorporate sustainability into all operations and curricula. Taylor offers five ways to do this: tensions and trade-offs of sustainability, fostering students’ negotiation and coalition-building skills, treating sustainability as an essential “minor” for everyone, working with businesses on real-life challenges, and taking corporate political responsibility seriously. “Rather than offering sustainability courses to the subset of students who are interested in them, we need to prepare our future business leaders to build coalitions and drive influence in a divided world,” concludes Taylor.
