Developing Sustainability Mindset in Management Education is relevant to students, educators, administrators, and leaders worldwide. It is a thoughtful, insightful, and purposeful book that breaks away from the traditional academic silos to allow educators to teach using systems thinking, self-awareness, and spirituality. The various authors present a re-conceptualization of education philosophies and objectives, new ways of developing a sustainability mindset in management students, and an opportunity to bring students into alignment with the United Nations 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).Margaret A. Goralski, PhD, Coordinator Capstone Business Experiences & Assistant Professor of Strategy, Quinnipiac University, Connecticut, USA Over the last decade, business management has been involved in an active debate over several global problems facing humanity. At the center of the debate is the search for engaging leaders in the private sector to support the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals and The United Nations' Principles for Responsible Management Education. Key to success in this direction is opening the mindset of business leaders to a holistic global view. Developing Sustainability Mindset in Management Education, edited by two visionary researchers, focuses on the essential factor of developing this weltanschauung or world vision mindset and offers both theoretical and practical methods. A remarkable collection of articles by like-minded and engaged researchers from around the world to help prepare leaders for dealing with common problems.Mehdi Majidi, Ph.D., University Professor and international consultant, Sustainable socioeconomic DevelopmentThe book calls for holistic approach to management education that simultaneously addresses the "heads, hands and hearts" of future business leaders and the organizations they will create and/or work for. It also provides evidence and inspirational stories on how the possibility of developing the specific logos, pathos and ethos of sustainable mindset for the new role of business in society, sustainable development and responsible leadership could be turned into reality, both inside and outside the classroom.

We, as a species, are in urgent need of learning for sustainability in order to become native again on this planet. Holistic educational approaches like the ones promoted by this book- learning to know, to do and to be- have enormous potential to foster such learning.Oliver Laasch, Ph.D. Founder of the Center for Responsible Management EducationAssistant Professor in Strategy, Nottingham University Business SchoolIf business education intends to foster global prosperity, then we must be more purposeful about developing the values, attitudes, and beliefs of our students. This book is about doing that. It informs and inspires by drawing on the ideas and experiences of pioneering professors from more than a dozen countries.Dan LeClair, Chief Operating Officer, AACSB
