Achievements Curriculum Integration in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
Before 2015 -
The School of Management (SoM) offered elective courses on Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability in the MBA, post-MBA Certificate program and Master of Public Policy and Administration (MPPA) during 2009-2012. Examples of courses included: 'Sustainable Business Strategies'; 'Sustainable Marketing'; 'Sustainable Development Policy'.
2015-2017 - refer to the first SIP report.
In the future, SoM is planning to integrate teaching topics of sustainability and CSR more broadly into curriculum: offer subject-based signature assignments, alternative capstone project for graduate business students, and continue to offer the sustainability-themed MPPA thesis topics. A significant effort will be made to expand the sustainability curriculum into the undergraduate program. New opportunities for experiential learning will be explored – projects, case studies, partnerships with local and global organizations, events, civil societies organizations, etc.
Achievements Research Development in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
SoM students have been involved in sustainability campus-based projects: produced projects and ideas for the institutional Sustainability Committee, participated in the Festival of Scholar annual events; and sustainability-related international competitions. In a broader scope, the students are involved in research on socio-economic development situation in the county /region. The research domains include healthcare, public safety, education, water policy, energy and climate change policy, and others.
