CIMA acknowledges people with MBAs as future business leaders. However, it is clear that in the competitive global market for talent, businesses are looking for more than just strong financial and managerial skills. Increasingly businesses are alert to the damage done to them by a failure to do the right thing which can cause economic and environmental damage, undermining a company’s longterm reputation and prospects.
