This paper investigates how deans and directors at the top 50 global MBA programs (as rated by the "Financial Times" in their 2006 Global MBA rankings) respond to questions about the inclusion and coverage of the topics of ethics, corporate social responsibility, and sustainability at their respective institutions. This work purposely investigates each of the three topics separately. Our findings reveal that: (1) a majority of the schools require that one or more of these topics be covered in their MBA (...) curriculum and one-third of the schools require coverage of all three topics as part of the MBA curriculum, (2) there is a trend toward the inclusion of sustainability-related courses, (3) there is a higher percentage of student interest in these topics (as measured by the presence of a Net Impact club) in the top 10 schools, and (4) several schools are teaching these topics using experiential learning and immersion techniques. We note a fivefold increase in the number of stand-alone ethics courses since a 1988 investigation on ethics, and we include other findings about institutional support of centers or special programs; as well as a discussion of integration, teaching techniques, and notable practices in relation to all three topics.

El texto de Peirce que en las páginas siguientes se publica por primera vez en castellano, forma parte de sus Notebook I de 1905, correspondiente a las Adirondack Summer School Lectures. Fue catalo-gado como MS 1334 en el catálogo de Richard R. Robin. En 1986 Kenneth L. Ketner eligió este sugestivo fragmento -hasta entonces prácticamente desconocido- dándole el título "The Nature of Science" para dar a conocer en el volumen de John J. Stuhr Classical American Philosophy. Essential Readings and Interpretative (...) Essays (Oxford University Press, 1987), la concepción que Peirce tenía de la actividad científica. La inclusión de la traducción al castellano de Sara F. Barrena de aquel sugestivo texto resulta un magnífico colofón para este número monográfico sobre las claves del pensamiento de Peirce para la filosofía, la ciencia y la cultura del nuevo siglo (J. N.). (shrink)
