50+20 50+20 Management Education for the World is a global initiative that developed a vision for future management training. Based on the recognition that current management education isn’t producing managers and leaders needed for a responsible and sustainable approach towards the global challenges of our time, an international research association has created a vision and normative model of the future roles of business schools. The results were presented at the 2012 Rio+20 United Nations conference on sustainable development, and have also been published in a book, “Management Education for the World: A Vision for Business Schools Serving People and Planet.” The normative model includes: The importance of training for globally responsible managers and leaders. Research that supports corporations and also serves the common good. An educational institution and teaching staff committed to a sustainable transformation of the economy and society. The collaboratory is considered a methodical model and a symbol for this reorientation. The active involvement of knowledge providers and users is serving as a collective platform and device for problem-oriented solutions and implementations. The 50+20 initiative started out as a strategic cooperation between three groups: the World Business School Council for Sustainable Business (WBCSB), co-founded by Thomas Dyllick in August 2010, the Globally Responsible Leadership Initiative (GRLI), and the UN Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME). Following this initial phase, the project was supported and financed by 16 international business schools and international organizations, including: Copenhagen Business School (DK), ESADE Barcelona (ES), Vienna University of Economics and Business (AT), University of Lüneburg (DE), ESSEC Paris (FR), Queensland University of Technology (AUS), University of Pretoria (ZA), CENTRUM (PE) as well as Business School Lausanne and the University of St. Gallen (CH). In order to enact the new standards, 50+20 was integrated into the GRLI at the end of 2012. ------------------------------ Publications: Muff, K., Dyllick, T., Drewell, M., North, J., Shrivastava, P. & Härtle, J.: Management Education for the World - A Vision for Business Schools Serving People and Planet.
