IMD AUGUST 2011
REAL LEARNING@IMD
Dear Reader,

August brings big news at IMD! Forbes ranks IMD’s MBA program first among one-year international programs and IMD will host The Strategy Challenge in Sao Paulo, Brazil for the first time.

In today’s world, strategy is increasingly infused with sustainability. In the article “Going forward with tomorrow’s sustainability approach,” Professor Michael Yaziji, Program Director of IMD’s One Planet Leaders program, proposes a new equation for reducing environmental impact.

Enjoy this story along with analysis on the 2012 Olympic Games, CEO compensation, social media strategy and more.
Best regards,

The IMD Webletter Team
