Abstract: Active learning can serve as a platform for addressing sustainability, ethics, and social entrepreneurship by engaging students in experiential activities with external organisations for initiatives with a social mission. A variety of active learning approaches provide an opportunity to promote collaboration between students and external organisations in pursuit of a socially beneficial goal. This paper highlights different active learning approaches that emphasise sustainability, ethics, and social entrepreneurship in undergraduate and graduate management education. These approaches include experiential learning methods, such as undergraduate case competitions and global MBA case studies, as well as action learning methods, such as live consulting projects and cross-national student collaborations. These active learning approaches can help students address ethical, social, and environmental issues in complex business situations.
