Bournemouth University Business School signed up to PRME in 2009. The Business School has taken the Principles for Responsible Management Education to the core of its academic values and instills the value in all areas of its pursuits through its BU ‘Fusion’ approach, including undergraduate and postgraduate teaching, as well as research and professional practice activities. We are delighted to share our experiences and progress of embedding PRME.
Achievements Curriculum Integration in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
The ‘development of a global awareness’ among the students as well as the staff ‘that feeds into research, enterprise and education’ is part of our corporate plan and we at the Business School, together with Bournemouth University, aim to ensure that the students acquire ‘broader world view’ and develop into responsible global citizens who are aware of a range of global issues, such as human rights, labour standards and environment.
The curriculum of BS undergraduate students is designed in the way that all students acquire the knowledge and skills with which they have the ability to critically analyse the situations surrounding current global business in regards business ethics, sustainability, and corporate social responsibility. Students are also trained to become able to consult companies on how to promote these issues and ethical behaviours.
It is one of the Intended Learning Outcomes of these courses to develop students’ ability to understand and critique the nature and complexity of social responsibility and ability to apply methodologies to critically examine moral, social, environmental and economic dilemmas as well as the ability to identify a range of managerial practices that encourage socially responsible behaviour.
