We have created a WikiSpace for the Business School Connection. This outlines the goals of the project and shows the benefits to universities, businesses and graduate students who might become involved in this idea.
We've also created a concept map, diagramming the strategy of the Tutor/Mentor Connection and the organization of information on this web site.
We are looking for volunteers to work on this project and hoping to recruit grad students from two to three different business schools who will contribute to the wiki and to this forum, with a goal of making the project goals a reality. Introduce yourself if you'd like to participate.
I found an article on the Harvard Business Review that I feel is really important reading for anyone thinking about this concept of Business School Connection. The article is titled Strategy & Society: The Link Between Competitive Advantage and Corporate Social Responsibility. Written by Michael E. Porter and Mark R. Kramer.
This link provides an overview: http://www.isc.hbs.edu/HBR_Strategy_Society.htm
I did a Google search using the title and Michael Porter's name and found a free copy that I could download and read.
