Ranking Business Schools on their contribution to "Education for Sustainable Development" - Methodologies and Initiatives for Implementation
The Hosei Journal of Humanity and Environment (Ningen Kankyo Ronshu)
Whereas most ranking schemes aim at the identification of the universally best performing universities, value-driven rankings take a focussed perspective: they aim at monitoring the progress of some kind of societal agenda based on social values and hence look for progress concerning specific educational contents. The emerging field of education for sustainable development provides a good case for studying evaluation criteria of a value-based ranking. This paper proposes a framework for a stakeholder-based university evaluation and maps the territory of rankings addressing Sustainable Development. Finally a complementing evaluation is proposed to address identified shortcomings.
