The Positive Impact Rating was launched again this year at EADA, giving our students the chance to evaluate our school on how it is solving societal and sustainable challenges.
The Positive Impact Rating (PIR) is a rating by students, for students, that can contribute as a lever of change for transformation in business schools. The results can be used as a tool to drive student-led sustainable development in cooperation with schools.
The collection of data in EADA is being organized by the students of the Sustainability Club, who will distribute a survey across campus through email campaigns, social media and more. Students take responsibility for assessing the positive impact of their own schools, providing a unique opportunity for the student voice to be heard.
On behalf of all students in EADA, the Sustainability Club representatives are excited to mobilize the student voices and academic choices to create positive change together!
The rating survey asks students 20 questions in seven relevant impact dimensions that sit within three areas: Energizing, Educating and Engaging. Business schools are then provided with a defined social impact and a tool that they can use for change.
The PIR was created by concerned business school experts together with global NGOs – WWF, Oxfam, and UN Global Compact. International student associations oikos, AIESEC and Net Impact are also part of the PIR, which is supported by VIVA Idea and Fehr Advice.
The overall PIR score of the business school is used to position the school on one of five levels. The different levels refer to the developmental stage of the business school, rating it by a certain level of achievement.
