Awards & Recognition
FIRST IN U.S. AND AMONG TOP 10 GLOBALLY
Corporate Knights, an international publication focused on social, economic and ecological benefits and costs, ranked Duquesne's MBA Sustainability #1 in the United States and #8 in the world (#2 among small schools). Their 2013 "Green MBA Survey" evaluated internationally ranked MBA programs from 17 countries based on sustainability coursework, institutional support and the academic experience.
ASPEN RATED IN TOP 25 ON GLOBAL 100
Since 2007, Duquesne University's MBA Sustainability has been ranked among the top 25 programs in the world on the Aspen Institute's Global Top 100, a ranking produced as part of the biennial Beyond Grey Pinstripes survey. Among schools of comparable size, Duquesne ranks #7 worldwide.
Beyond Grey Pinstripes is a research survey and ranking that spotlights innovative full-time MBA programs leading the integration of social and environmental stewardship into graduate curricula. Approximately 12,000 courses and faculty research abstracts and 4,000 examples of institutional support were collected from 149 participating schools to compile the 2011-12 rankings.
TOP THREE IN BUSINESS ETHICS
The Academy of Management Learning and Education journal ranks Duquesne's John F. Donahue Graduate School of Business as one of only three schools scoring in the highest category of ethics content. All three high-scoring schools (Duquesne, Georgetown and Notre Dame) are Roman Catholic institutions.
The Donahue Graduate School of Business has been accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International (AACSB International) since 1962. Only a small number of business schools worldwide have earned this elite accreditation.
PRINCIPLES FOR RESPONSIBLE MANAGEMENT EDUCATION
Duquesne University was among the first business schools to endorse the Principles for Responsible Management Education, a United Nations-backed initiative promoting environmental stewardship, human rights, and fair trade practices. Over 500 schools are now signatories.
Beyond Grey Pinstripes
"In the Beyond Grey Pinstripes survey, success is measured … by how well prepared [students] are to guide a company through the complex relationship of business and society, where issues relating to the environment or the well-being of a community can impact a company's performance and reputation,"
