Responsible Management Education at AGSM MBA Programs – MBA Challenge video contest

AGSM MBA Programs at the Australian School of Business is a signatory school of the UN Principles of Responsible Management Education initiative. Signatory schools commit to embedding ethical and socially responsible teaching into curricula, promoting these values to students, and engaging in research and partnerships to explore effective approaches to meeting the challenges of global social responsibility and sustainability.

In relation to this, we would like to draw your attention to a competition being run by the Global Business School Network (GBSN). GBSN is offering current MBA students and recent graduates the opportunity to showcase the work that they are doing to make the world a better place. The competition encourages current and former students to submit a video highlighting their student projects, start-up enterprises, and new careers which are making a difference to the developing world, and how their MBA experience helped them to accomplish this.

The winner will present her/his innovative work to the participants of the 6th annual GBSN Conference co-hosted by IPADE Business School in Mexico City on June 21, 2011: Generating Leadership: developing human capacity in emerging markets.

At AGSM MBA Programs we are aware that many of our current students and alumni are using their MBA experience to effect positive change across the globe, and we encourage all those who fit the criteria to apply for the MBA Challenge video contest.

Entries must be submitted by 11:45pm EST (US) on April 1, 2011
