It’s easy to gauge the growing interest in business school programs that address social and environmental issues. At University of California-Berkeley’s Haas School of Business, Kristi Raube says all you have to do is look at the jump in applicants expressing a desire for more socially conscious careers, student activities, and the subjects of business case competitions.

On Nov. 6, Haas launched the Institute of Business & Social Impact. The center, which is run by former Haas Dean Laura Tyson, will house a hodgepodge of activities, including a new research project exploring the impact of women on the economy, the Center for Nonprofit & Public Management, the Center for Responsible Business, a graduate program in health management, and the Global Social Venture Competition.
