This Handbook strives to enhance knowledge and application within sustainability in management education (SiME) across different academic programs, geographic regions and personal/professional contexts. Cross-disciplinary and boundary-spanning, this book focuses on specific themes and is therefore split into four distinct sections: one on theory and practice, one on transformational interventions in business programs, one on the role of external agents and the last on innovative approaches in SiME.

The co-editors expertly provide a roadmap for SiME while discussing key implications, appli cations and utilities that explore motivations and project possible outcomes for advances and integration of SiME. In addition to identifying new discursive strategies in SiME research, the co-editors provide a critical narrative and discussion on newly identified commonalities and connections within the Handbook’s chapters. This content assessment highlights prevalent intersections for advancing, challenging and questioning the implementation of SiME in various programs.

Management scholars, researchers, educators and practitioners as well as current, emerging and future leaders in various academic and private sectors will find this Handbook invaluable. It will serve as a key reference for more advanced studies in this rapidly developing field.
‘The Handbook of Sustainability in Management Education: In Search of a Multidisciplinary, Innovative and Integrated Approach by Jorge Arevalo and Shelley Mitchell is a must-read for all those intrigued by the thought of transformational change in our business schools. Integrating sustainability into management education is a primary aim for the United Nations Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME), of which most reputable business schools are members. Thus, this volume should be read by all educators. Only by increasing the expertise and knowledge of our MBAs and undergraduate business students, those who are the future workers in and leaders of our firms, will we see a substantial reduction of negative externalities that result in global catastrophes ranging from climate change to financial crises and everything in between. The old guard is locked in to a set of damaging patterns and we will not have much of an earth left to repair if we allow them to continue. Our organizations must learn to do more sustainable productive creation rather than so much destruction. I urge everyone to read this book and think about the wide ranging implications if we were to improve our university education systems to be sustainable through and through. In addition, this book by Jorge and Shelley is a wonderful community-building piece for the field of Organizations and the Natural Environment, having so many distinguished contributors involved with it. This is truly a treasure trove demonstrating the heights that academics can achieve together on a collaborative effort aimed at enabling a better future for our children and the earth of which we are all a part.’
