Sharing Information on Progress (2015)
Period Covered: Nov 2012 to Sep 2015
Achievements Curriculum Integration in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
- Hull University Business School has a long history in Business Ethics. It was the first Business School in the U.K. to introduce an undergraduate Business Ethics module in 1987.
- The School has now developed CSR modules across all levels (undergrad/MSc/MBA) as well as sustainable business, sustainable logistics and business ethics and law modules
- CSR is offered to organisations through executive education. The most recent example was with William Jackson Food Group Ltd. which focused on addressing the CSR activities of the company.
- CSR presentations are regularly given to a variety of stakeholders, in the past year, these have included the Chartered Institute of Public Relations, the Hull Junior Chamber, and the Chartered Management Institute
- CSR is also available to the wider community as part of the 'Business Bytes' series. Anyone is able to come along to these presentations free of charge.
- An audit has identified where CSR/Sustainability principles are being taught (or not) across the Business School's offerings. This will be used to identify future areas for development.
- This year, CSR will be integrated into the exec MBA curriculum as a core component. The full-time MBA will follow.
