GEM’s 6th SIP Report - View Report

Period Covered: Oct 2016 to Oct 2018

This report renews GEM’s commitment to PRME principles, to bring more focus, attention and a sense of urgency to advancing the SDG’s by joining forces with other institutions of higher education around the world working to achieve them. Students must understand, in parallel to having a career, they must protect the world, protect our democracies – even better they can make a career of protecting the world and create business for good.

Achievements Curriculum Integration in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability

GEM’s approach to pedagogy and learning is founded on individualized and collaborative learning while offering diversity and choice in course offerings and learning experiences. The School’s portfolio of program objectives includes a particular focus on Ethics, SD and CSR, and curriculum mapping processes put in place are beginning to identify the emphasis given to these objectives within traditional core courses of our programs. Pedagogical innovation has broadened the scope and spaces of our traditional learning experiences and environments – from mandatory study or work abroad, to the jointly taught course in Grenoble, France and Tsukuba, Japan delivered simultaneously using e-learning and video -conferencing, to live case studies and student consultancy projects that focus on local social businesses and NGOs. While the themes of SD/CSR are becoming more reflexive and embedded in traditional core coursework at GEM, meaningful student learning often takes place outside the classroom in co-learning contexts whether they be institutional, fieldwork, internships, associative or humanitarian. The Global Compact Steering committee, that governs and coordinates the school’s progress in SD/CSR, has been a collaborative learning endeavor from the beginning, including administrators, faculty and students. These innovative action learning models allow students to learn not just from faculty, but to learn with administrators, coaches, teachers, businesses and the local and global community.

Achievements Research Development in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability

Sustainable and local development has been an integral part of Grenoble Ecole de Management’s applied research strategy and activities since 1994, especially the partnerships and applied research developed by the Centre TIME since 1994. Scientific research in the areas of CSR, sustainable development and ethics at GEM has been steadily growing since 2002 when the School hired its first researcher specialized in Marketing and SD. In addition, today the school has numerous learning and research circles that focus on the following issues: Energy & Technology, Cooperatives, Social Entrepreneurship, Social Marketing, Economic Peace Education, Economy of “Less”, Mindfulness and Well-being at Work, Green and Social Innovation and Business Ethics.
