EGADE Business School - Tecnológico de Monterrey won the Best CSR and Sustainability Initiative prize in the AMBA & BGA Excellence Awards 2024.
This award, conferred by the Association of MBAs (AMBA) and the Business Graduates Association (BGA), recognizes business schools with an outstanding commitment to corporate social responsibility (CSR) and sustainability, demonstrating a passion for generating a positive impact on communities and societies.
EGADE Business School was honored for its social impact strategy and EGADE Action Week initiative. This multidisciplinary event was first held in April 2023 in Monterrey, bringing together students, alumni, professors, collaborators, authorities, civil society organizations, and companies.
EGADE Action Week provided a space for dialogue and collaboration, with over 750 participants who enjoyed conferences, workshops, exhibitions and other activities focused on business transformation to achieve a sustainable impact, opening the school's doors to the wider community.
Horacio Arredondo, dean of EGADE Business School, expressed his gratitude on receiving the award, highlighting the importance of the School’s social impact strategy: "This award recognizes the commitment of the entire EGADE Business School community to the construction of a fairer, more sustainable society. Our strategy is based on the conviction that business can contribute significantly to the progress of our countries as long as it is carried out in an ethical, innovative, and sustainable way. Our social impact strategy is structured around these three pillars, which will continue to inspire the deployment of our CSR and sustainability goals.”
EGADE Action Week will be consolidated as an annual tradition at EGADE Business School, focusing on the UN Sustainable Development Goals towards 2030 and seeking to extend the school’s social impact and community participation beyond the classroom while generating opportunities to learn and collaborate from various perspectives.
The Best CSR and Sustainability Initiative award was one of the eleven honors presented during the AMBA & BGA Excellence Awards 2024 ceremony, held on January 19 in London, UK, bringing together more than 200 business school leaders.
