Image of Corporate Responsibility

The UC Davis Graduate School of Management has a long-standing commitment to changing the world through the power of business, embracing community and ethical principles, and putting our collective ideas into action toward this goal. Sustainability and corporate responsibility are woven into the very fabric of the School’s culture, and we are widely recognized for leadership in pioneering research and teaching that ensures that business education is part of the solution to the challenges of globalization.

From helping to commercialize science and engineering breakthroughs that have great potential, to applying new tools for socially responsible investing, UC Davis MBA students, faculty and alumni are innovative leaders, pushing for an inclusive and sustainable global economy.

These are just a few examples of our commitment and dedication to strengthening and broadening our core programs that support the principles of responsibility, sustainability and the environment:

  • One of the first 100 business schools in the world—among only 20 in
    the U.S.—to adopt the United Nations Global Compact’s Principles for Responsible Management Education, the first international guiding framework for academic institutions to advance corporate social responsibility.
  • Our expertise and initiative advances the debate among educators, business, government, consumers, media, interest groups and stakeholders on critical issues related to global social responsibility and sustainability.
  • Our Center for Investor Welfare and Corporate Responsibility promotes research, teaching, courses and student activities that bridge scientific and ethical principles in corporate practices.
  • The Aspen Institute Center for Business Education’s Beyond Grey Pinstripes survey ranks UC Davis among the top 8 small business schools and among the top 30 worldwide for leading the way in integrating social and environmental stewardship into our curricula and scholarly research.
  • Student activities, such as our Davis Net Impact chapter, Community Consulting Group and student-led ethics pledge, are blazing new trails in developing programs that focus on integrity in business and community involvement.
