Achievements Curriculum Integration in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
Stirling Management School’s key aim is to offer the opportunity for students to engage with modules and programmes that encourage critical thinking about the role of business in society; and bring them into contact with company representatives so as to learn first-hand the challenges of responsible corporate behaviour. It is our ambition and future commitment to ensure that upon graduation all undergraduate (UG) and postgraduate (TPG) students have followed at least one module that instils moral values in business and highlights the significance of sustainable and responsible business practice. As a sign of the School’s commitment to sustainability, a new programme, MSc Strategic Sustainable Business, has been introduced and an executive education programme (jointly delivered with University of Cambridge), Sustainability Leadership Development Programme (SDLP), will engage with a second and third cohort during 2017.
Achievements Research Development in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
Stirling Management School's exceptional performance in REF2014 has resulted in a coveted place among the UK's top 25 institutions for Business and Management, and 14th for research impact, out of 101 business schools. Stirling Management School is recognised as a centre of academic excellence that offers innovative scholarship and widespread engagement with a variety of stakeholders to improve and transform business, society and lives. SMS research is increasingly recognised by industry and government decision-makers for its important contributions to solving real-world problems. The School is proud to support a number of successful research centres which advance knowledge on the theory and the practice of sustainable value creation and management in organisations; guide public policy with respect to stakeholders’ engagement and protection; and engage local, national and international industry, students, NGOs, and public policy organisations in fruitful discussion and debates. These research centres include the Centre for Sustainable Practice and Living (CSPL), the Behavioural Science Research Centre; the Research Centre for Consumers, Cultures and Society; the Healthy Ageing in Scotland (HAGIS) and the Centre for Research into Information, Surveillance and Privacy (CRISP). The research centres take the opportunity to develop and disseminate knowledge through engagement with a range of stakeholders and communities; academic publications and regular seminars, workshops and presentations, and also the development of relevant teaching modules.
