Acsenda School of Management was featured in Business Graduates Association (BGA) Business Impact Magazine’s May – July 2022 edition. The magazine looks at how partnered business schools are attempting to make optimistic and beneficial contributions to society.
What was featured in the BGA’s magazine?
Acsenda’s very own President Dr. Neil Mort was featured in the article, answering an important question on how Acsenda School of Management is addressing the environmental impact.
‘For the past two terms, in conjunction with Drawdown BC, we have offered a joint micro-credential in environmental awareness, sustainability, and climate action. This is a 5-session program that seeks to provide meaningful opportunities for students to increase awareness regarding climate change, connect with their communities and develop initiatives that help to bring positive change’, he said.
Acsenda’s new program has sought to educate students on how they can help the environment and reduce CO2 to prevent worsening climate change. In the program, students have to create their own proposal of what they can do to help fight environmental change in a business management context.
