Achievements Curriculum Integration in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability

The Victoria Business School addresses matters such as ethics, corporate responsibility and sustainability in its learning and teaching in two ways. There are discrete courses that relate to these aspects of the curriculum (across a range of undergraduate, post-graduate, and executive education programmes). In addition these concepts are embedded in relevant courses across the major subjects offered across the VBS, so that all students become exposed to them in the context of specific disciplines.

Achievements Research Development in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability

Research, seminars, and public lectures on topics related to corporate responsibility and sustainability have long been part of the activities of the VBS The VBS hosts a number of research institutes, including the Institute for the Study of Competition and Regulation, the Institute for Governance and Policy Studies, and the Health Services Research Centre. In addition the VBS hosts sponsored chairs in Restorative Justice, Business In Asia, and the Economics of Disasters. These research centres and chairs have work programmes that relate to matters such as social responsibility and the sustainability of business and the environment. A recent analysis of selected categories of research outputs for the VBS reveals a significant number related to the themes of ethics, responsibility and sustainability - approximately 7% of the total VBS research output. In addition, the VBS includes the School of Government which, as one of the University partners in the Australia and New Zealand School of Government (ANZSOG), has responsibility for a case study programme. Several VBS staff members have contributed 64 case studies in the areas of ethics, responsibility and sustainability to ANZSOG.
