The Journal of Jesuit Business Education is the peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary journal of the Colleagues in Jesuit Business Education (CJBE). The journal is dedicated to the distribution of scholarly work and commentary with a focus on the distinctiveness of business education in the Jesuit tradition. Papers must be original work, not previously published and not under review elsewhere. Published manuscripts represent a wide range of interests from all business disciplines with a focus on Jesuit and Catholic identity, ethics and social responsibility, service learning, faith and spirituality, and social justice.
The Journal of Management for Global Sustainability was launched in 2011 as a scholarly outlet for publishing original research on ways public and private sector management practices can advance global sustainability. The JMGS is a peer-reviewed scholarly journal devoted to publishing original research and commentary on the field of management for global sustainability. Global sustainability is the broad set of interconnected issues that encompass, but are not limited to, achieving environmental preservation, social justice, poverty eradication, social entrepreneurship, desirable production and consumption patterns, species and resources preservation, and spiritually rich lives at this time in our species’ history on this planet.
The mission of the IAJBS is to enhance the ability of business school deans and administrators to lead in the creation and transmission of scholarship and knowledge that will prepare students for the profession and vocation of business leadership in a global economy.
