SIP report faculty BMS University of Twente - View Report

Period Covered: Jan 2017 to Dec 2018

This is the first report that we present to PRME. Therefore, we have presented all our actions from the last years that could be correlated to the 6 principles of PRME.
One of our actions is the organisation of a SDG festival.

Achievements Curriculum Integration in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability

In the bachelor programme International Business Administration we have a special RESTS line = Reflection on Science, Technology & Society. In the first year this line focusses on logic, argumentation, understanding basic principles of scientific integrity, critical reflection training. In the last semester of the 3 year program a 15 credits module deals with issues such as corporate governance, business ethics, strategic and responsible foresight. In the master programme Business Administration the 3 core mandatory courses concern responsible organisation design and leadership, corporate governance and research ethics. In both programmes, a skills line is implemented encouraging students to take responsibility for their personal development and stimulate them to become critical thinkers. In 2016, the faculty established an ethics committee.

Achievements Research Development in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability

Further and explicit implementation of the EFMD White Paper on Business Ethics and the EQUAL guidelines for Sustainability as well as the PRME principles.
We carry out our research and teaching involving companies following the engaged scholarship approach as advocated by Andrew Van de Ven.
