Achievements Curriculum Integration in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
We pay attention to corporate responsibility and sustainability in a number of specialised courses, but perhaps more notably, in several 'mainstream' courses in the BSc, MSc, MBA and executive programmes. This partly originates from the fact that a considerable portion of our faculty has an interest in these topics, either as specialisation within their discipline area, or as one aspect of a wider research portfolio. We aim to further extend this in our continuous development and innovation of the curricula.
Achievements Research Development in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
Corporate responsibility (environment/sustainability, social and ethical issues, corporate governance) has been an area of specific interest at ABS for quite some years, both as specific expertise of researchers who are also embedded in their disciplinary areas and, for others, as one of the topics of interest within a wider portfolio.
We have over fifteen researchers who focus fully on corporate responsibility, with at least another twenty who have explicitly listed aspects of it as part of their broader area of interest; amongst many of the teaching faculty, a clear awareness and often explicit interest is notable as well. Overall, there is thus a considerable body of knowledge and much research activity and output (articles, books, Ph.D. theses) in various disciplines (including strategy, marketing, accounting, finance, HRM) with consequently a substantial network of companies and other stakeholders connected to ABS on the topic, as much of the empirical research takes place at or with the corporate world to start with, and there is exchange in both directions.
