MONFORTE GARCIA, Gabriela; HARTMANN, Andreas Michael  e  FARIAS MARTINEZ, Gabriela María. Institutional statements and individual perceptions of sustainability in Mexican business schools. Contad. Adm [online]. 2017, vol.62, n.1, pp.5-24. ISSN 0186-1042.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.cya.2016.04.006.

The objective of this paper is to analyze how business schools of Mexican universities deal with the concept of sustainability as part of their educational task. In order to achieve a comprehensive vision, this study considers the environmental, the social, and the economic components of sustainability. After discussing the conceptual dimensions of education for sustainability, the empirical part of the paper consists of two sections: a content analysis of how official university documents handle the concept of sustainability and a survey of professors' and students' perceptions of sustainability. The analysis shows that both professors and students in the Management and Accounting disciplines need to extend their understanding about the economic and environmental aspects of sustainability. The results of this study provide information that can guide the efforts made by institutions of higher learning for training their professors and offering a comprehensive education for their students in all three components of sustainability.
