Engaging the power of business for good

Business leadership – which includes caring for our planet and its people – is built into all that we do and teach. At Quinlan, we believe business schools can help create a more sustainable and inclusive global economy. We are consistently at the forefront of sustainable practices. Some examples:


The Quinlan School of Business is one of only four business schools in the world recognized for excellence in sustainability, ethics, and social purpose—categories developed by the Financial Times for its report on responsible business education.


We are a member of the UN initiative, Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME), a voluntary effort with more than 650 signatories worldwide, including numerous Jesuit universities.  


The Schreiber Center was awarded a prestigious LEED gold certification for its sustainable design and energy conservation efforts. About the Schreiber Center →
