The Aspen Institute’s Center for Business Education ranks the UC Davis MBA program among the best in the world for integrating issues of social and environmental stewardship into curricula and research. The UC Davis full-time MBA program is ranked among the top 10 percent worldwide, at No. 56 among more than 600 accredited programs.

Beyond Grey Pinstripes is an independent business school survey and ranking that is published every other year. Findings from the survey highlight how academic institutions prepare students to meet tomorrow’s business challenges. Beyond Grey Pinstripes is unique—Aspen celebrates coursework, research and activities that prepare MBAs for social, ethical and environmental stewardship.

This year’s survey marked the first opportunity since the global economic downturn to measure the extent to which MBA programs have altered the content of their courses, and whether faculty are pursuing research that questions assumptions about the role of business in society. This year, schools from 22 countries submitted data, including more than 6,000 course descriptions and 6,000 faculty research abstracts. In addition, the survey team collected information on schools’ extracurricular activities, institutes and centers, joint degrees and specializations.

What opportunities, decisions, events have shaped your professional life?

My career path has been a climb across a jungle gym rather than a tangent up a corporate ladder.
