Our Panel Symposium is designed to address the question of how these can contribute to integrating sustainable business education, specifically by investigating different forms of ‘fit’ they can achieve with their ‘home’ business schools, as well as the strategic and substantive value of ‘non-fit’ or ‘friction’ with their home schools. It is designed and facilitated by the authors of a forthcoming paper on this topic (Slager, Pouryousefi, Moon & Schoolman d.o.i. 2018) and features leaders of well-known sustainability centres, including Mette Morsing (CBS/Stockholm School of Economics); Andy Hoffman (Stephen M. Ross School of Business and the School of Environment and Sustainability, University of Michigan) and Vasanthi Srinivasan (Indian Institute of Management Bangalore)
