Sharing Information on Progress (2018)
Period Covered: Jun 2016 to Jun 2018
Our 2018 SIP report marks a decade of involvement with PRME for the Kemmy Business School. We are very honoured by this engagement, and look forward to engaging actively in the current cycle of PRME Champions.
In this SIP, we report on our actions under each of the six principles, and the 17 SDGs. We provide a sample of our published research as it relates to the core areas of PRME and the UNGC, and give accountability relating to the plans we made at the time of the submission of our 2016 report.
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.
