Dr Julie Hodges, Associate Dean for MBA Programmes at Durham University Business School says, “Our MBA explores global ecological and social sustainability, looking at the impact on, and responsibilities of, business, as well as the role organisations need to play. It is vital MBA students gain the understanding of the impact of sustainability and ethical issues on the business world, and enhance their capabilities to lead businesses effectively in the future.”
