Sustainability in Business Education in the Asia Pacific Region: A Snapshot of the Situation
Naeem, Malik; Neal, Mark
International Journal of Sustainability in Higher Education, v13 n1 p60-71 2012
Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to provide information about the extent to which sustainability is integrated into business school education and learning in the Asia Pacific region. Design/methodology/approach: A survey was developed, and administered to business schools in the Asia Pacific region. In addition to measuring the number of courses and programs integrating sustainability, the study solicited qualitative observations by respondents, to provide information and insight into the issues. Findings: The research found that whereas corporate governance, sustainability and business ethics were quite commonly taught in business schools, they were not generally prioritized. There was also an overall lack of systematic approaches to the integration of sustainability in business curricula, and significant barriers to the integration of sustainability into programs remained. Originality/value: This is the first region-wide survey of sustainability in business education in the Asia Pacific region. (Contains 4 tables, 1 figure, and 2 notes.)
