Invitation to participate in the 2009-10 Beyond Grey Pinstripes alternative ranking of business schools

18 August 2008

Beyond Grey Pinstripes is a research survey and alternative ranking of global MBA programs organised by the Aspen Institute's Center for Business Education. The survey is conducted every two years and seeks to identify all classroom teaching, faculty research, case writing and innovative case methodology, and extracurricular activities that are related to the social and environmental impacts of mainstream business. Last year, a total of 111 educational institutions took part.

The research survey for Beyond Grey Pinstripes 2009-2010 will be distributed in the fall of 2009 and is particularly relevant for schools that produce and teach interesting and innovative case studies. These schools may be producing curriculum content that is highly relevant but not widely known. While the survey does not collect specific cases, it does collect syllabi that illustrate innovative case writing or case methodology and can increase a school's reputation and credibility in the case writing world.

Beyond Grey Pinstripes is administered as part of a broader effort to ensure that MBA programs are preparing future business leaders to both identify the opportunities and mitigate the costs of business' relationship with society and the environment.

Web conferences

Web conferences will take place at 10h-11h and 16h-17h EDT on Wednesday 20 August to offer a 'sneak peak' of what to expect in this year's Beyond Grey Pinstripes cycle. The special guest on both calls will be Nicole Biggart, Dean of the Graduate School of Management at the University of California, Davis, who will speak about her school's experience with the survey process. RSVP for one of the two web conferences by emailing Justin Goldbach.
