Gray Pinstripes as I understand focuses on environmental and sustainability MBA programs–not the full range of social business. Given that social business is new–this is certainly one important way to look at the overall issue. Its also possible to look at supply chain rankings (for instance at US News and World Report) and think about greening the supply chain or other reforms in the supply chain as ways to create reform in business.

Remember to check this list with other relevant facts about these universities. Looking at rankings is one key way to filter your decisions and find schools which are a better fit for your needs–both as a student and in your career. Also, it obviously helps to examine other data points (ask to speak to graduates as well as relevant data about their success in the marketplace)–particularly in the first 1 to 5 years after graduation.

Here is the full graypinstripes study ranking. They also have ways to customize the data a bit for your needs as a student.

* FYI: at the moment I haven’t hot linked the school names to their respective university websites.
