October 13, 2011
On the cornerstone at the entry to the Hutton Honors College is a quote from Edward L. Hutton, the benefactor and business leader for whom the Honors College is named, that reads, "Let's Make the World a Better Place." Mark Albion, after earning a BA in economics, an MA/MBA, and a joint PhD in business economics, all from Harvard, became a highly regarded professor at Harvard Business School. In the years since, he has turned his attention to helping business and other leaders use their education and talents to make the world a better place and their own lives more satisfying. Among the organizations he has co-founded is Net Impact, "a global network of leaders who are changing the world through business." A book he wrote, titled: Making a Life, Making a Living, became a New York Time Best Seller. Known for his work in social entrepreneurship, social innovation, and sustainable business, Albion was named the Entrepreneur of the Year in 2010 by IU's Johnson Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation in the Kelley School of Business.
