MGSM PRME Report 2015 - View Report

Period Covered: Nov 2013 to Nov 2015

Since becoming a signatory school to PRME in 2010, MGSM has become a highly engaged PRME signatory. As we fully support the mission of PRME and the notion of academic social responsibility of business schools, through the MGSM PRME annual study, helping to lead the regional chapter, and collaboration around the Journal of Business, Peace and Sustainable Development. Since our last SIP report we continued to implement the six principals of PRME, in our curriculum, teaching and research.

Achievements Curriculum Integration in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability

MGSM has steadily been developing specific course offerings that use sustainability and ethics as a lens through which management is critically assessed. We have launched a Master of Management (Sustainable Leadership). This particular course includes an innovative partnership with Macquarie University’s Graduate School of the Environment (GSE) allowing student exchange with the GSE. GSE students can access MGSM’s management units and MGSM’s students can incorporate into the Master of Management (Sustainable Leadership) a selection of technical Environmental Management subjects.

Subjects that are core across MGSM programs and have a sustainability and/or CSR content include:
• Organisational Behaviour, which includes a 4 hour session on Ethics and CSR and
• Operations Management, which gives CSR a treatment in one of its four hour sessions.

Electives that have been available to students over the past five years and entirely devoted to sustainability and responsibility issues include:

• Managing Sustainable Organisations,
• European Study Tour: Sustainable Leadership and
• Ethics and Governance.

Leadership and Motivation is an elective available to students in most of MGSM’s Master Level courses and includes a four hour session on sustainable leadership, including environmental responsibility, CSR, ethics and 21 other elements.

MGSM also has a significant community service role. In particular we contribute without charge to provide structured education to Papua New Guinea (PNG) managers on site in PNG.

With a structure of dedicated courses and subjects in place, we now need to mainstream responsibility, infusing it into the entire curriculum. We are a member of the Globally Responsible Leadership Initiative (GRLI) and are developing a more global mindset, increasingly being guided by international frameworks such as the principles of the UN Global Compact.

AND

What has your institution achieved and what are you planning to achieve in terms of academic research and knowledge development with companies in the field of corporate responsibility and sustainability? ”

There is strong nexus between research and curriculum, with new programs mentioned above being informed and driven by the research of academics within the school. In addition to numerous books and papers published by academics within MSGM, the Editor and Deputy Editor of the Journal of Global Responsibility are based here.

In addition we have been developing a concentration of research expertise in the area of sustainability and responsibility. We are currently formalising this structure. To do this we have adopted the research cluster model, which allows people to collaborate. That cluster is still forming its identity, but the research profile of several of our academics has already begun to draw in doctoral students with relevant interests, which further strengthens this concentration.
