Achievements Curriculum Integration in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
The AUT Business School curricula at undergraduate and postgraduate levels include opportunities for students to engage with corporate responsibility and sustainability topics, and there are programme learning goals to reflect and assess this. All undergraduate business degree students are introduced to sustainability and responsible business practice as key topics in their first semester of study in the Bachelor of Business. In addition, for undergraduates who wish to explore these issues further, there is a Sustainable Enterprise major in the Bachelor of Business. At postgraduate level, several papers focusing on corporate responsibility and sustainability are offered and the MBA includes sufficient papers to allow an endorsed sustainability specialisation.
Achievements Research Development in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
AUT Business School faculty undertake research that advances understanding of environmental sustainability, sustainability reporting and accounting, corporate social responsibility, social and environmental entrepreneurship, responsible marketing and advertising, sustainable supply chains, sustainable tourism, gender and diversity, and employment relations. This research is presented at international conferences and published in various fora, including academic journal, case research and practitioner outlets. The School’s postgraduate students have similarly undertaken research into a variety of topics relevant to the PRME objectives in their Master of Business and PhD theses, addressing topics such as sustainability management and corporate social disclosure and reporting.
