For more than a century management education has fostered the development of leaders of many of the world's industrial successes with their immense creation of output that we now see as unsustainable. If we wish to avoid a time of tumultuous environmental crises in the global ecosystem management education must move more to being part of the solution, rather than of the problem. The task of transforming management education to contribute to the challenge of moving to global sustainability is upon us. Management Education for Global Sustainability provides a diverse and extensive set of perspectives on how management education can be transformed to be a significant part of the solution to the sustainability problem that business and other sectors of our world must grapple with. The spectrum of current integration of managing for sustainability into business school curricula is provided. A review of the current status sustainability oriented business degree options is completed. Approaches from around the world including China are offered. Management Education approaches through systems thinking, art, and stakeholder's theory are parsed. Specific examples of notable programs are covered, sustainable entrepreneurship for instance. A series of reports on program and institutional level initiatives that have been very successful are described. A new MBA program with a major in sustainability, integrating ocean science courses, is considered. Programs with action learning projects and industry concentrations as core elements will be analyzed. The sense of deeper purpose vibrancy and developing authentic relationships in management education for global sustainability is robust throughout this volume.

'What does it mean for the environment?' is a strategic corollary of almost any significant business decision today, and companies must take seriously their responsibilities to regulators, customers, employees and the wider society. A Thousand Shades of Green is aimed at business leaders in need of a clear understanding of the key corporate environmental challenges and the insight and vision to meet them - imperatives such as engaging stakeholders and developing partnerships, understanding the policy-making process, forming corporate responses and drafting environmental management strategies - with the promise of genuine competitive advantage for their companies. Drawing on their extensive consultancy experience with some of the most progressive companies around the world, the authors examine why and how businesses must confront the rapidly developing agenda set by environmental constraints and social and regulatory pressure. They identify the corporate environmental challenge with that of change management and advocate a recognition that there is no single strategy or endgame applicable to all companies - there are a thousand shades of green. Only by pursuing thorough, reflective, consistent, competitive and proactive strategies will businesses be able to avoid being embroiled in costly and complex reactive approaches.

Should business strive to be socially responsible, and if so, how? The Debate over Corporate Social Responsibility updates and broadens the discussion of these questions by bringing together in one volume a variety of practical and theoretical perspectives on corporate social responsibility. It is perhaps the single most comprehensive volume available on the question of just how "social" business ought to be. The volume includes contributions from the fields of communication, business, law, sociology, political science, economics, accounting, and environmental studies. Moreover, it draws from experiences and examples from around the world, including but not limited to recent corporate scandals and controversies in the U.S. and Europe. A number of the chapters examine closely the basic assumptions underlying the philosophy of socially responsible business. Other chapters speak to the practical challenges and possibilities for corporate social responsiblilty in the twenty-first century. One of the most distinctive features of the book is its coverage of the very ways that the issue of corporate social responsibility has been defined, shaped, and discussed in the past four decades. That is, the editors and many of the authors are attuned to the persuasive strategies and formulations used to talk about socially responsible business, and demonstrate why the talk matters. For example, the book offers a careful analysis of how certain values have become associated with the business enterprise and how particular economic and political positions have been established by and for business. This book will be of great interest to scholars, business leaders, graduate students, and others interested in the contours of the debate over what role large-scale corporate commerce should take in the future of the industrialized world.
