Sharing Information on Progress (2016)
Period Covered: Jun 2014 to Jun 2016
This is the June 2016 PRME SIP from the Kemmy Business School, University of Limerick, Ireland. We have chosen to report not only on each of the six principles, but also to align our activity to the UN Sustainable Development Goals. We are delighted to be able to report activity under 16 of the 17 Goals in this, our first attempt and integrating the SDGs in our reporting.
Achievements Curriculum Integration in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
We continue to expand the range and depth of teaching and learning focused on CSR and business ethics. These modules are now part of our executive MBA, our MSc Programmes in Taxation, Risk and Insurance, Financial Services and Computational Finance, as well as the BA in Management and the BSc in Energy. The concepts are also an integral part of other KBS subjects, particularly accounting, corporate finance, marketing and consumption, strategy, organisational behaviour, entrepreneurship, HRM and taxation. We have introduced a new "Broadening the Curriculum" module on Social Media for Social Good which gives students a chance to engage directly on these topics in partnership with local charity groups.
With this increased focus has come a wider range of research on social issues, increased engagement with the local and business community and far richer student engagement.
Achievements Research Development in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
See our latest 2016 SIP for a summary of research output in the School in this area. Our aim is it further responsible business and responsible management education. Our most immediate plan is to host a week-long set of conferences in October 2016 devoted to concepts of The Common Good, involving PRME Champions, the GRLI, our business stakeholders, policy makers and academia.
