Achievements Curriculum Integration in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
The comprehensive and holistic training of professionally competent and socially responsible people. To this end, on each of our programmes we teach contents, use cases and generate debate with a view to making our participants aware of and training them in social responsibility and sustainability issues. An academic
institution such as EADA has the duty to generate knowledge that is relevant to
improving organisations and society as a whole.
Academic research on subjects related with sustainability and social impact, which at the same time permeates through the academic syllabuses of our programmes with CSR related concepts. Specific, applied and relevant research
on sustainability in various fields and from various perspectives constitutes a
necessary contribution when it comes to helping managers to comply with the agenda of sustainable development goals published by the United Nations.
Achievements Research Development in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
t is the duty of an academic institution such as EADA to produce knowledge that is relevant to
improving organisations and society as a whole. With the double objective of raising awareness
among future managers around CSR related issues and of fulfilling the United Nations Sustainable
Development goals, EADA has increased the number of research articles, books and contributions to
conferences, working papers and presentations at academic congresses.
The case studies which are studied in EADA’s classrooms address all aspects related to CSR. Some examples are: stakeholders’ capacity to create value, the role of cooperatives in generating renewable energies, CSR theories, human values in the Operations and Supply Chain Management strategy, the ethical image of brands, human and sustainability values at work, conciliation between work and family life and the rise of ethical businesses, among others.
