Achievements Curriculum Integration in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
ISM has offered the following courses in its MBA curriculum for many years: Business Ethics, Sustainable Business Development, and Executive Leadership. Furthermore, ISM has offered the following courses in the DBA and PhD curricula for many years: Business Ethics, Executive Leadership, and Corporate Social Responsibility.
In addition to the above-mentioned courses, ISM has developed several innovative courses such as Management & Leadership of Non-Profit Institutions, Social Enterprises, Social Innovation & Entrepreneurship, Values-Based Leadership & Sustainable Performance, and Leadership, Organizations & Networks. ISM is very committed to developing the ethical leadership capacity of managers and directors in the private, non-profit, and public sectors.
ISM has worked with a variety of partners throughout the world to offer the innovative courses listed above in developing and emerging economies in Asia, Latin America, and Africa. For example, in 2015, ISM offered a program in partnership with the University of Cape Town in South Africa on Values-Based Leadership. The doctoral-level course was taught by Dr. Nceku Nyathi, and it included the participation of Dr. Thabo Magkoba, the Anglican Archbishop of Cape Town.
Achievements Research Development in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
Corporate responsibility and sustainability is one of the key fields of research of our institution. As most companies are transitioning towards a digital-based model, there is a need to rethink traditional business models and envision innovative ones. The research and knowledge produced at ISM aims at addressing the challenges of this transition, especially in the area of corporate responsibility and sustainability. Several doctoral dissertations have been written in this area. Our faculty often produce work in this field. Our goal is to publish some of the doctoral dissertations as well as professors’ scholarly production in this field in the ISM Journal of International Business. The Journal will be a means of sharing and disseminating knowledge in the field, not only within the ISM community but also outside of it. By being company-based research, the work produced has clear managerial implications to ensure the long-term sustainability of companies.
