The Aspen Institute's Beyond Grey Pinstripes 2011-2012 Top 100 MBA Programs is a global ranking of leading business schools innovating in social and environmental impact. The ranking includes 149 schools from 22 countries, and is based on coursework offerings and published faculty research. The data used to build this ranking is available at www.BeyondGreyPinstripes.org.
While many MBA rankings exist, only one looks beyond reputation and test scores to measure something much more important: how well schools are preparing their students for the environmental, social and ethical complexities of modern-day business.

Overcoming Short-termism: A Call for a More Responsible Approach to Investment and Business Management
Twenty-eight leaders representing business, investment, government, academia, and labor joined the Aspen Institute Business & Society Program’s Corporate Values Strategy Group (CVSG) to endorse a bold call to end the focus on value-destroying short-termism in our financial markets and create public policies that reward long-term value creation for investors and the public good.
The statement, “Overcoming Short-termism: A Call for a More Responsible Approach to Investment and Business Management,” identifies three leverage points for encouraging a renewed focus on long-term value creation and for addressing one part of market short-termism, shareholder short-termism:
- Market incentives: encourage more patient capital through tax policy
- Alignment: better align the interests of financial intermediaries and their ultimate investors
- Transparency: strengthen investor disclosures
