Georgia Tech Scheller College of Business was recently named one of the grand prize winners for the Dr. Alfred N. and Lynn Manos Page Prize for Sustainability Issues in Business Curricula.
The Page Prize was launched in the fall of 2008 by the Darla Moore School of Business to encourage efforts to expose business students to state-of-the-art environmental sustainability knowledge.
Scheller's submission was prepared by Beril Toktay, professor of operations management, holder of the Brady Family Chair, and faculty director of the College's Center for Business Strategies for Sustainability (CBSS). In 2012, Toktay received a seed grant from the Ray C. Anderson Foundation for the creation of CBSS.
According to a spokesperson, the Ray C. Anderson Foundation is proud of the work that Toktay and many others are doing at Georgia Tech with the “seed” the organization has planted here.
Other contributors to the prize submission from Georgia Tech were: Howard Connell, professor of the practice of business sustainability and managing director of CBSS; Lucien Dhooge, professor of law and ethics; Jeffrey Hales, professor of accounting; Karthik Ramachandran, associate professor of operations management; Omar Rodriguez, assistant professor of marketing; Frank Rothaermel, professor of strategic management; Atalay Atasu, professor of operations management; Ravi Subramanian, associate professor of operations management; and Sudheer Chava, professor of finance.
