AUS SBA 2014-16 PRME SIP - View Report

Period Covered: Jun 2014 to Aug 2016

Achievements Curriculum Integration in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability

We strive to develop individuals who can ethically lead organizations toward economic success and social and environmental responsibility in the global marketplace of the 21st century; advance students' knowledge of issues and practices affecting business organizations, international and domestic institutions, and governments; and develop an awareness of societal and environmental needs and concerns as they relate to ethical, professional and socially responsible business practices. To further these values, we require all students - undergraduate and graduate - to take one course in business ethics and social responsibility and we are now offering an advanced undergraduate ethics course in Business and Peace.

Achievements Research Development in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability

The SBA will host the PRME Business for Peace Annual Forum in 2016. This will be second consecutive year that the SBA has committed a significant budget to an SDG-related academic-practitioner conference and we hope to continue that commitment going forward. Several members of the faculty from the School of Business and Management have published in the field of corporate responsibility and sustainability including article in journals in the Financial Times 45. We have partnered in programs with A4S (Accounting for Sustainability). CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) and Business for Peace (B4P) will continue to be areas of research interest and an important topic in business and management courses. The SBA via our faculty representative sits on and was one of the founding members of the UN Global Compact UAE Local Network Steering Committee. The Pearl Initiative, developed in cooperation with the United Nations Office for Partnerships, engages with the business community to help them maintain and enact their values and is based in the SBA building on the American University of Sharjah campus.
