This conversation opens a series of webinars on business and climate change organized by Business Schools for Climate Leadership (BSCL) - a collective of eight business schools committed to work together to raise awareness of the issues, challenges and actions needed to help current and future business leaders to tackle climate change.
Hosted by IESE in collaboration with INSEAD - two founding members of BSCL - the event will explore the geopolitical and inequality factors business leaders need to account for when engaging in decarbonization efforts. Mike Rosenberg, IESE Professor of the Practice of Management of Strategic Management and Mark Stabile, INSEAD Stone Chaired Professor in Wealth Inequality will engage us to explore why business should care about these issues and what they can do about it.

Mike Rosenberg is a Professor of the Practice of Management in the Strategic Management Department of IESE Business School. He began teaching part time in the MBA and Global Executive programs in 1999 and joined the faculty on a full time basis in 2003.
Professor Rosenberg lectures in IESE's MBA and Executive Education programs, where he teaches strategy, geopolitics, and sustainability and publishes a weekly blog on these topics under the title Doing Business on the Earth.
His first book, Strategy and Sustainability (Palgrave Macmillan, 2015), is an exploration of the link between business and the environment and looks at the issue more from the perspective of business executives rather than that of environmentalists. The second book is titled Strategy and Geopolitics (Emerald, 2017) and is written to encourage business leaders to pay more attention to what is happening around the planet. Both books offer his own frameworks for looking at these two issues.
From 2004-2009, Professor Rosenberg managed IESE's International Executive Education Unit. He was Academic Director for the IESE's Advanced Management Program in Media Entertainment and co-edited Managing Media Businesses (Palgrave Macmillan, 2017), which is based on the course. Rosenberg is also the Academic Director for a Focused Program called Leading in a Matrix Organization at IESE's campus in New York City and for a number of Custom Programs for corporate clients of the school.
Prior to joining IESE Business School, Rosenberg was the Automotive Practice Leader of Heidrick & Struggles and previously he spent 15 years as a Management consultant in Europe, North America and Asia for A.T. Kearney and for Arthur D. Little, primarily in the automotive sector.
Professor Rosenberg received his PhD. from Cranfield University, an MBA from IESE Business School, and a Bachelor of Science in Naval Architecture from the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor.
