Poets & Quants, Fortune - Oct 22, 2015 - At the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, MBA candidates sent Queen’s New Republic article to behavioral science professor John Paul Rollert. The students’ concern over ethics education points to the generational change that is turning B-school students’ focus toward impact and away from pure profiteering, Rollert believes. To Rollert, who teaches an ethics course at Booth that was added after the financial crisis, arguments about whether B-schools are to blame for corporate misbehavior are peripheral to the main issue: “The question is, can business schools do more to enhance the integrity of the business world?” Increasingly, B-schools are responding to “from the ground up” student demands for an education that will position them to make a positive impact on the world, particularly in the area of social enterprise, Rollert says. Booth’s Social Enterprise Initiative is “tremendously popular,” and many students participate in the school’s New Venture Challenge to learn about and develop impact-producing enterprises, he says.
