Satu Teerikangas, Mollie Painter, Ivo Matser, Katarina Haluskova, Karolina Sobczak


In light of the 2022 Knowledge Into Action Forum, explicitly focusing on "Futures of Business Education", the ABIS team and the guest editors of the forthcoming Special Issue on "Best Sustainability Teaching Practices" reflected on how business schools need to take responsibility for the mindsets, frameworks and management theories they teach and to transform their practices, curricula and research.

In this position paper, the authors focus on and summarize important bodies of literature calling for the creation of sustainable mindsets and advocate for both pedagogical transformation and a reconsideration of the theoretical underpinnings in business education. The hope is for business schools to take true leadership toward sustainability transitions.
