QS Top MBA‘s recently released Global 200 Top Business Schools Report serves up the definitive list of B-schools currently preferred by the most international employers for the purpose of hiring MBA graduates.
When looking at top programs based on specialization, one area of particular interest emerged. Seems in the wake of the financial crisis and a decade littered with corporate scandals, many schools have ramped up the number of courses in corporate social responsibility (CSR) offered as part of their MBA programs, which is a boon for anyone looking to specialize in CSR or business ethics.

“Many of the schools appearing strongly in our results are seen to be making a positive post-crisis contribution in the field.”
Business schools seem to face any questions about their role in the crisis head on, the report finds. Their focus within the CSR and ethics field has shifted, taking active and a leading responsibility for their role in developing the correct mindset of the global business leaders of the future graduating from their MBA programs.
