But can you really find a job in this field? Absolutely. Join Katie Kross for a conversation about MBA career paths in corporate sustainability, corporate social responsibility (CSR), socially responsible investing, sustainability consulting, renewable energy, and other green industries. She’ll share practical tips, tools, and resources gleaned from hundreds of interviews with MBA students and alumni who have successfully navigated the sustainable business internship/job search.|
