Benefits of Partnering with Us

Join our network of experts, partners, scholars, students, and alumni to discover insights and advance practices that can positively impact your organization’s sustainability performance and bottom line.

Focusing on major themes of carbon-conscious business, circular economy, and social performance/human rights, we advance sustainability integration and innovation as well as promote environmental, social, and governance (ESG) leadership.


Leverage Our Expertise

Engage our thought leaders across business and technical disciplines through research, workshops, case studies, and/or white papers on the business case for sustainability. As a start, we invite you to view our Sustainable Business Insights research brief series for a sample of our faculty’s cutting-edge work.

 

Connect with Our Students

We are working to develop “the Ray C. Andersons of tomorrow” who excel in a wide range of business functions while effectively navigating and addressing sustainability-related risks and opportunities. Our success in cultivating sustainability leadership is recognized in both the Corporate Knights’ Better World MBA Ranking and the Positive Impact Rating, which in 2020 named Scheller College a “transforming” school. We invite you to get to know our talented students and to benefit from their insights and perspectives through hands-on projects and activities such as:

  • Hosting consulting practicum projects and capstone course teams.
  • Providing internship opportunities.
  • Sponsoring scholarships, student groups such as Net Impact, and our Center’s Graduate Sustainability Fellows and Undergraduate Sustainability Ambassadors.
  • Sharing insights on a career panel, serving as a guest lecturer, or presenting a talk in our Business, Society, and Environment Speaker Series.
  • Participating in the Carbon Reduction Challenge in which interns identify carbon reduction and cost-saving opportunities for your organization.

Once you get to know our creative and passionate students, we know you will want to recruit and hire them!
