Atkinson on Global 100 List

Atkinson Graduate School of Management was named to the prestigious Beyond Grey Pinstripes survey, which spotlights the top 100 MBA programs that integrate social and environmental stewardship into teaching and research. More than 40,000 pages of data are collected and analyzed to determine the biennial rankings, which are then used by tens of thousands of students, corporate leaders and scholars to network, select schools, recruit graduates and find best practices in teaching and research. These schools are preparing students for the reality of tomorrow's markets in a competitive and fast changing world, according to the Aspen Institute, which sponsors the survey. Willamette was listed in 58th place and was recognized for business curriculum that offers unique breadth and depth of exposure to social, environmental and ethical issues. "We are preparing our students to be good stewards and effective managers for the organizations they serve, whether they are business, government or nonprofit," says Interim Dean Debra Ringold.
