MBA with focus on corporate social responsibility - USA or Europe


borism
hello Everyone!

After reading V. Wish article on CSR here - http://www.find-mba.com/article/191/more-mba-programs-focusing-on-socially-responsible-business i got really excited and now I'm really considering taking my MBA with focus on corporate social responsibility. The thing is, I can't decide what where it would be better to take such a Program - USA or Europe!

My Line of thinking goes something like this: although it seems that the Majority of schools giving an MBA Program with focus on corporate social responsibility are based in the USA, Europe is still more "Green" as a whole, meaning that maybe there are better job prospects for graduates. on the other hand, maybe now its a good time to consider doing it in the USA, as it seems that it is entering a new era.

What do you People think? any thoughts would be appreciated!

Thx,

Boris

I Would think that USA is a better Place to do a MBA with focus on corporate social responsibility, as the whole "Green Thinking" idea is new there, which means that the companies would probably be looking for a lot qualified hands in the next few years - which in turn means better placement opportunities of MBA graduates!
