Companies have the potential to transform education—all while driving shareholder returns. The Shared Value Initiative and FSG are working with corporate and global education leaders to define a new role for business in education—one that leverages the power of business to improve educational outcomes worldwide. Their new report explores the innovative ways that leading companies are putting education at the core of their corporate strategies. 

The report's findings highlight how companies across industries and geographies are creating shared value by filling unmet educational needs, improving student outcomes, and overcoming workforce constraints in ways that bring economic benefits back to the company. We based these recommendations on interviews with more than 50 global business and civil society leaders.
