The new standard of corporate sustainability goes way beyond recycling and energy efficiency. Today’s business leaders embed social and environmental impact into an organization’s value chain to drive performance and competitive advantage. In order to prepare students at the Robert H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland for the opportunities and challenges of corporate sustainability, the Center for Social Value Creation (CSVC) hosted its first ever Sustainability Roundtable Lunch & Learn last week.
This past summer, students at the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business were granted a unique opportunity to put their knowledge into practice at the World Bank headquarters in Washington, D.C., as part of BMGT364: Managing People and Organizations.
Women at Smith will have access to new scholarships, events and career opportunities through an alliance with the Forté Foundation, a consortium of corporations, business schools and nonprofit organizations that empowers women in the workplace.
Smith will take center stage Oc. 9-11, 2014, when female business leaders and students from around the world gather for the MBA Women International Conference and Career Fair in Washington, D.C.
