Description

Environmental sustainability has begun to penetrate the curriculum at schools of business administration. Whether it takes hold and ultimately becomes a key component of managerial decision-making models will depend upon whether it is perceived as legitimate in the context of profit-making enterprises. This paper develops a conceptual framework for operationalizing perceived legitimacy, which should facilitate evaluation of the effectiveness of various pedagogical approaches to integrating sustainability into business school curricula.
