Timothy Mescon told about objectives for sustainable development in the sector of business education
Executive vice president of AACSB International (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) Timothy Mescon met with students on July 16. He talked to RANEPA Summer Campus participants about the importance of collaboration of business schools and the corporate world.
Modern business education includes innovative management practices that focus on sustainable development strategies. Timothy Mescon touched upon social entrepreneurship that offers effective solutions to social problems. He examined a case of well-known NPO Water is life – the organization which helps to solve the problem of clean water shortage.
According to the lecturer, business schools and their connection to the corporate world represent a cradle of new generation managers who are ready to build and support sustainable business. Non-profit organizations of such size, such as Water is life, attract innovative technologies and help society solve problems at the international level. It is necessary to educate managers with the understanding of importance of sustainable development objectives, so that more and more similar organizations can appear.
