Para la Universidad EAFIT es un honor presentar la tercera versión de su reporte Sharing Information on Progress. En esta versión, la Universidad está no sólo reportando sobre su compromiso con la adopción de los valores de responsabilidad social y sostenibilidad corporativa en sus actividades de formación, investigación y proyección social; sino también cómo, por medio de sus prácticas organizacionales sirve como ejemplo a sus diferentes grupos de interés en la apropiación de estos valores.

Achievements Curriculum Integration in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability

• By institutional mandate, each of our undergraduate and postgraduate courses has at least one module on either business ethics or corporate social responsibility. This decision aims to promote critical thinking and to provide decision making elements for future managers and current citizens regarding ethical dilemmas.
• We promote teaching strategies that facilitate the development of socially responsible practices and values, such as: debates, discussions, students projects, workshops, and evaluations.

• Our executive education portfolio comprises courses on responsible management and sustainability within the Global Compact framework.

• We actively participated in the local network of the Global Compact. We are specially committed in the Anti-Corruption national roundtable.
• We publicly communicate our commitment towards responsible management education, and share with the business community our views through academic papers, books, business magazines’ columns, newspapers articles and conferences in the field of corporate social responsibility and sustainability.

Achievements Research Development in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
