Faculty from UCLA and Cornell University have been awarded top honors in the 2010 Dr Alfred N. and Lynn Manos Page Prize for Sustainability Issues in Business Curricula, an annual competition by the Darla Moore School of Business at the University of South Carolina that recognizes innovation in teaching sustainability.
Honorable mentions in this year’s competition went to the University of Oregon and the University of Victoria.
The Moore School created the competition in 2008 as part of its Sustainable Enterprise and Development Initiative, which cultivates an understanding of sustainable enterprise through the natural environment, governance and ethics and the exchange between firms and their counterparts in governments and civil society.
The Page Prize promotes the introduction and improvement of sustainability courses and associated coursework into the curriculum of business schools in the U.S. and abroad.
“At the Moore School we want to expose our business students to the best thinking and practices in the area of sustainability,” said Dr. Andrew Spicer, associate professor of international business and director of the Moore School’s Sustainable Enterprise and Development Initiative. “The database allows the Moore School to share these best practices for sustainability teaching and curricular materials with institutions of higher learning worldwide.”
This year’s competition featured more than 30 entries that represented disciplines including accounting, entrepreneurship, finance, international business, management, marketing, operations and supply chain management and organizational behavior.
The winning submissions are part of a growing database of winning course descriptions and curricula for business faculty around the world to use. More than 20 courses are featured on the database, which is accessible on the Moore School website at www.mooreschool.sc.edu and through Moore School’s partner page on the Aspen Institute’s website www.caseplace.org
In June, the Page Prize will be featured at the Global Business School Network conference in Mexico City and at a Sustainability Conference in Charlotte, N.C., organized by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).
