Connect with fellow UBC Sauder alumni over cocktails and canapes in New York on February 27.
UBC Sauder Professor Katherine White has been recognized as one of the top researchers at the University of British Columbia, earning a 2018 UBC Killam Research Prize in the Arts & Humanities category.
UBC Sauder recently submitted a report to the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME), a UN-initiative to make 'sustainability' an integral aspect of business schools around the world. The document highlights important initiatives, value-based research and efforts undertaken to engage with the business community and raise the profile of ethics, responsibility and sustainability.
This week, UBC launched a campaign to extend SkyTrain all the way to its campus. According to Associate Professor & Chair, Strategy and Business Economics Division, Werner Antweiler, extending SkyTrain all the way to UBC—8.6km of track—makes good economic sense. The $3.3-3.8 billion investment will pay off in multiple ways right from the start, and the benefits will bring long-term economic growth and urban development.
In todays marketplace, eco-friendly product options can prove to be a tough sell, often because consumers have negative perceptions about sustainable products — they are seen as being more expensive, less effective, or less attractive. According to a new study from the UBC Sauder School of Business, however, those reasons could run even deeper — and may even depend on how consumers think.
