Fit or Friction: Mette Morsing and colleagues win AOM Best Symposium Award 2019 in Boston
The symposium "Fit or Friction: The Role of Sustainability Centres in Integrating Sustainable Business Education" won the MED Global Forum Best Symposium Award 2019. Congratulations to the organizers and the panel.
The panel symposium took place at the AOM Conference early August 2019 and was designed to address the question of how sustainability centers can contribute to integrating sustainable business education, specifically by investigating different forms of ‘fit’ they can achieve with their ‘home’ business schools, as well as the strategic and substantive value of ‘non-fit’ or ‘friction’ with their home schools.
It was designed and facilitated by Slager, Pouryousefi, Moon & Schoolman and features leaders of well-known sustainability centres, including (CBS/Stockholm School of Economics); Andy Hoffman (Stephen M. Ross School of Business and the School of Environment and Sustainability, University of Michigan) and Vasanthi Srinivasan (Indian Institute of Management Bangalore)
The MED Global Forum Best Symposium Award goes to the symposium that best creates the opportunity to address global issues of significance to management education and/or development.
