Business Administration Program Ranked First for Infusing Social and Environmental Impact Management into Curriculum

Corporate Knights, Canada’s magazine for responsible business, has once again awarded Trent University’s Business Administration program the top spot in their annual ranking of Canadian undergraduate business schools.

The 2007 Knight School Guide, published in the July issue of Corporate Knights magazine, surveyed and eval uated 46 undergraduate business programs across Canada. Trent University’s Business Administration program clinched the number one position for infusing social and environmental impact management into the curriculum. According to the magazine, Trent also led the way for "doing big things in the fields of environmental management; development in First Nations communities and socially and environmentally responsible international business. "

"Our continued success in these rankings reflects our program’s commitment to create educational contexts that enable effective learning experiences for socially and environmentally responsible leadership," said Asaf Zohar, an associate professor in the Business Administration department at Trent University. "We strive to create opportunities for our students to explore new pathways to sustainability and values-based leadership that can make a difference in these challenging times. We will continue to develop our program in a way that will help our students successfully sei ze these opportunities, and to be leaders in generating sustainable value for organizations and society at large ."

The annual ranking, now in its fourth year, is touted as "a guide to business schools for students who want to change the world". In the first and third years of the survey, Trent ranked second among primarily undergraduate schools. In the second year, Trent’s program also ranked first overall. The top three ranked undergraduate business schools for 2007 were Trent University, the University of Calgary and York University.
