Sharing Information on Progress (2017)
Period Covered: Jul 2015 to Jun 2017
Stockholm School of Economics (SSE) hereby submits its second Sharing Information on Progress (SIP) report, for the period 2015 to 2017. SSE’s main strategy and approach to responsible management education is to incorporate an element into each of our courses in all academic programs at all levels to expose our students to the major challenges of our lifetime. We are also proud to witness the rapid development of our dedicated sustainability center, the Mistra Center for Sustainable Markets (Misum).
Achievements Curriculum Integration in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
SSE has included responsible management in all academic programs at all levels. The introduction in 2016 of the Global Challenges courses at the bachelor level, which has proven most successful, best displays this approach. These have been well-received by the students and we would like to acknowledge the substantial efforts by the faculty members who have developed this new and interesting concept as well as the faculty who have taken on the challenge to teach these courses.
Achievements Research Development in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
The appointment of a fully financed professor as of January 2017, Professor Mette Morsing, as the Mistra Chair of Sustainable Markets and Scientific Director at Misum, shows SSE’s long-term commitment to furthering quality education and research in this subject area. Since the last SIP, SSE has been awarded an additional large grant of 30 MSEK (3.4 MUSD) over four years for research on how financial systems can better contribute to the sustainable development of society. The Swedish Foundation for Strategic Environmental Research (Mistra) funds the research and it includes a number of international and Swedish partners in a research consortium. The Mistra Financial Systems platform is an important addition to the Misum activities, fitting well in with the overall activities and expertise of SSE.
