Achievements Curriculum Integration in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
Business School at XJTLU offers a wide range of modules that integrate these elements in our Management, Economics, Accounting and Finance programs at undergraduate level.
For example, in Management programs there are modules of Managing the Employment Relationship, International Management, Organizational Behavior, Corporate Social Responsibility, Fundamentals of Marketing, Consumer Behavior, Integrated Marketing Communications and Relationship Marketing that integrate the contents on business ethics and social responsibility in various contexts.
In Accounting and Finance programs there are modules of Business Strategy, Auditing etc. that introduce the professional ethical awareness and the role that this plays in accounting context.
In Economics program there modules of Quantitative Methods and International Economic Relations that covers topics related to globalization and introduces quotes on social responsibility and happiness, some of which have received good feedback from students.
In addition, students are introduced to the particular analysis/case studies in the context of China. In particular there have been final year projects which students choose to focus on the Chinese students moral sense etc.
We are planning to set up more advanced and diversified courses on sustainability and business ethics to improve students' awareness and practices on exploring solutions for social innovation in corporate responsibility and sustainability. A specific new CSR programme for both undergraduate and postgraduate level would be considered in near future.
Achievements Research Development in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
Currently, research in the field of corporate responsibility and business ethics as well as sustainability are just emerging among faculty staff in Business School at XJTLU. For example, there have been six publications in peer-reviewed journals made by staff members on corporate social responsibility in China, sustainable development, ethical finance, and behavior economics, in recent three years. There can be seen regular conference/seminar attendance of faculty members on these topics in the context of China as well as around the world.
In near future, we are aiming to conduct more environment related research activities to raise the awareness of local companies on taking social responsibilities. Sustainability, social entrepreneurship, business ethics, green supply chain, as well as MNCs’ CSR spillover in Chinese market, etc. are also under consideration of many faculty members in their future research plan. We also concern the establishment of a cross-discipline research group/center to facilitate research collaborations within and beyond our University.
