Do business schools influence students’ awareness of social issues? Evidence from two of Chile’s leading MBA programs

This study explores the role that business schools have in developing favorable attitudes toward
business involvement in corporate social responsibility (CSR). Two cohorts of incoming students from two inter- nationally accredited MBA programs in Chile and two cohorts of graduating students from the same institutions were compared in terms of their attitudes toward the role of business in alleviating social ills and the role they assigned to business schools in preparing managers to effectively address social issues. The attitudes expressed by graduates of the two programs changed after program completion. Faculty attitudes toward business involvement in CSR may play a role in the observed differences between the graduates of both institutions.
