MBAs going social

MBA graduates have had a bad name for being greedy and arrogant, but business schools claim this has changed. Students are now as keen on careers in social enterprise as they are on working in the financial sector. Anand Anandalingam, dean of the Robert H Smith school of business at the University of Maryland, explains how students are now getting experience of non-profit organisations and looking for meaningful careers, rather than ones that will quickly clear the cost of the MBA.
