Education

The future of ethical business around the world begins with the up and coming leaders of the movement having access to high-quality education. As the movement of businesses that do good— and also create a profit — continues to grow, education and sustainable development go hand in hand.

Business school programs focusing on social issues, including justice and sustainability, continue to bubble up across the United States. These courses are set up to train the ethical CEOs, investors and managers of responsible companies of the future. For example, Pinchot University in Seattle launched the first “sustainable MBA” program in the country, and the Collaborative MBA, offered jointly by four academic institutions, was conceived to address and enact fundamental changes in the global economy.

Other conventional business schools, including those at New York University, Yale University and Columbia University, offer student-loan forgiveness to graduates who work at Certified B Corporations, and their graduates are encouraged to seek positions with companies that have social and environmental benefits written into their bylaws. (Learn more about social enterprises founded by such leaders, including ethical clothing companies, in our free report.)

Some of those leaders then dedicate their professional lives to launching or working for mission-driven companies looking to change the education system from the ground up through technology, data and research. Organizations like the for-profit AltSchool, founded by Max Ventilla, for example, disrupt the education system through research and engineering, with the goal of using data and technology to figure out what attracts and motivates students to learn better. Similarly, students at the Khan Academy learn at their own pace — the founder Salman Khan believes that education should be personalized and and adaptive to societal changes. Both AltSchool and Khan Academy’s business models are intended to make effective education more widely available.
