The Aspen Institute, a premier non-profit, research organization for corporate social responsibility, offers the first comprehensive guide to the world’s leading global MBA programs in CSR—an indispensable guide for prospective students, universities, hiring companies, and libraries. This guide provides an overview of how global MBA programs bring social impact management into their curricular and extracurricular programs. Social impact management, which includes environmental, ethical, and corporate governance issues, is the field of inquiry at the intersection of business needs and wider societal concerns that reflects their complex interdependency. Without an understanding of this interdependency, neither business nor the society in which it operates can thrive. Each year business schools from around the world strive to differentiate themselves and attract the best and the brightest future business leaders, while prospective MBAs are looking for a program that will provide effective management skills to succeed in the changing face of business. The bottom line is no longer exclusively dedicated to financial returns. Rather, business leaders must also consider the environmental and social impacts of their decisions in order to compete in today’s marketplace. The MBA schools that participate in the Aspen Institute’s survey, and are therefore highlighted in the Aspen Institute Guide for Socially Responsible MBA Programs: 2008-2009, are leaders in integrating these issues into their MBA curricula.

Published in 1952, Paul Tillich’s (1886–1965) seminal work The Courage to Be is among his most important writings, and it established his reputation outside of academic theology. In this book, he summarized in concise form the core themes of his overall theology, reformulating the notion of faith as “the courage to be” while also furnishing a re-interpretation of modern society.

In seinem vorangegangenen Bestseller stellte George Soros einen theoretischen Rahmen für das Verständnis der Finanzkrise vor, die sich damals abzuzeichnen begann. Er hatte schon früh erkannt, dass die Krise gravierender war, als viele eingestehen wollten. In seinem neuen Buch fasst Soros die erschreckenden Fakten zusammen, die immer noch die Spalten der Zeitungen füllen. Dabei analysiert er scharfsinnig jeden einzelnen Fall. Soros ist bekannt für seine treffenden Prognosen und scheut sich auch dieses Mal nicht einen Blick in die Zukunft zu werfen. So konfrontiert er den Leser schonungslos mit den Auswirkungen der Krise, indem er die künftige Entwicklung des Dollar, der Schwellenländer Indiens und Chinas sowie die stärker werdende Rivalität von EU und Russland unter die Lupe nimmt.

Covering all advanced practice competencies and roles, this book offers strategies for enhancing patient care and legitimizing your role within today’s health care system. It covers the history of advanced practice nursing, the theory behind the practice, and emerging issues. Offering a comprehensive exploration of advanced practice nursing, this edition also adds a focus on topics including the APN scope of practice, certification, and the ethical and legal issues that occur in clinical practice. The development of all major competencies of advanced practice nursing is discussed: direct clinical practice, consultation, coaching/guidance, research, leadership, collaboration, and ethical decision-making. Advanced practice competencies are discussed in relation to all advanced practice nursing and blended CNS-NP roles (case manager, acute care nurse practitioner), highlighting the shared aims and distinctions of each role. In-depth discussions on educational strategies explain how competencies develop as the nurses’ practice progresses. A chapter on research competencies demonstrates how to use evidence-based research in practice, and how to promote these research competencies to other APNs. A conceptual framework shows the clear relationship between the competencies, roles, and challenges in today’s health care environment. Practical strategies are provided for business management, contracting, and marketing. Comprehensive information covers the essential competencies of the new Doctor of Nursing Practice degree. More exemplars (case studies) provide real-life scenarios showing APN competencies in action. A new chapter shows how to provide reliable and valid data to substantiate your impact and justify equitable reimbursement for APN services, also enhancing your skills in quality improvement strategies, informatics, and systems thinking. Information on telehealth considerations covers the new sources of electronic healthcare information available to patients and describes how to counsel them on using reliable resources.
