Universities are expected to become more and more involved in solving global problems and achieving sustainable development goals. Establishing deeper interaction with the economy, politics, media and civil society has become a key task for universities. In addition to their traditional functions - education and science – they now have a new, third mission: engagement with the community, societal impact on the national and regional levels. Are business schools ready for these new challenges? Do business schools, whose graduates are thought to have been at the root of the biggest economic crises of recent times, have a greater responsibility to society than other universities? How can business schools get involved more actively in the decarbonization and green economy agenda? What role should accrediting organizations and rating agencies play in promoting responsible business education?
