A new study finds exceedingly few, despite more calls from students for such training. Among the leaders: Harvard MBAs are known for their ability to produce spreadsheets, PowerPoint presentations, and references to case studies at a moment's notice. But ask them about their role as environmental and social stewards and you may get some blank stares. That's because few B-schools teach the basics in socially responsible business to their MBAs, according to Beyond Grey Pinstripes, a study released on Oct. 31. The Aspen Institute's Initiative for Social Innovation through Business and the World Resources Institute (WRI), both nonprofits, run the study to assess B-schools' ability to impart green-friendly management lessons to future execs. According to Pinstripes, the top B-schools for social-impact management are Harvard Business School, Loyola Marymount University, the University of Michigan Business School, University of North Carolina's Kenan-Flagler Business School, and York University's Schulich School in Canada.
