Achievements Curriculum Integration in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
a) We have four integrative chain courses along the programme, one of them on Ethics and development issues. Topics around ethics, sustainability and CSR are developed in the two courses comprising that integrative chain.
b) In relation to programme design, we have recently made a deep review of "Ethics for Management" with the course professors to present and discuss ethical challenges in Management as a key formative component of that course.
c) In addition to CSR as a key topic of a regular course, we have created an optional course where the students work closely with small-scale enterprises analyzing and responding to their challenges. In this way, our students consider the opportunities for value creation in dialogue with entrepreneurs. We have also designed an entrepreneurship incubator (called G-Lab) as a co-curricular activity, a space open to all our students where they will be able to use design thinking methodologies to respond to particular needs of our society.
d) The optional course where students interact with small-scale enterprises has served to pilot this new methodology and we are re-designing a key regular course (Strategic Management) to offer this learning process as part of the regular Programme for all of our students. Increasing the options to learn through actual cases foster the capacity of our students to identify the challenges of and alternatives to sustain long term value creation of the organisations.
e) Regarding program design we just recently revised our “perfil de egreso”. As a result we prioritized four key competences: Research, Strategic Innovation, Ethics and Sustainability and Soft Skills.
f) The aim of our school is to create value to achieve a better society throughout: (1) better organizations (meaning more productive and ethical institutions), (2) more entrepreneurship focusing on resolving real needs and problems, and the application of strategic management techniques to wider systems (cities, regions, sectors, etc.). As a school we contribute to these aims throughout our three main roles: education, research, and direct intervention.
Achievements Research Development in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
a) Almost 280 thesis approved since the first group of students finished the Programme in 2010, with an important number of them analyzing and responding to a specific challenge of a particular enterprise or group of enterprises, being CSR and other relevant policies and practices a topic often considered.
b) The School has recently launched its Advisory Board comprised by representatives of the Corporate, Public and Social sectors we serve. The Advisory Board’s role is to help the School identify ways to strengthen the links with business, public and nonprofit organizations. One of the topics we are working on is around the business sector adoption of the sustainability agenda for our country, and how to adapt our programme to these challenges.
