Our Global Responsible Footprint - Nottingham University Business School PRME 2019 SIP Report - View Report

Period Covered: Jan 2017 to Dec 2018

In this fifth PRME SIP report, we have taken a novel approach to reporting our activities in order to demonstrate our efforts and contributions towards the achievement of the 17 SDGs across our three campuses, namely the UK, China and Malaysia. The report especially highlights Nottingham University Business School's notable strength in fostering and nurturing local and global partnerships (SDG 17).

Achievements Curriculum Integration in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability

core modules:

• Business Ethics for 3rd year BA Management and BA Finance, Accounting and Management students;
• Sustainable Decisions and Organizations – an integrative module for the MBA

Various BA elective modules address key sustainability issues (e.g. ‘Marketing and Society’, ‘Auditing, Governance and Scandals’).

A new MSc Sustainability in 2016.

The School also contributes to the MSc Sustainable Energy and Entrepreneurship programme.

There are several elective modules related to sustainability issues available to all MBA students in the UK, Malaysia and Singapore.

Achievements Research Development in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability

The School has an established reputation for research in CSR and sustainability issues, led by its International Centre for Corporate Social Responsibility.

Strategic development for research focuses upon academic and practitioner collaborations to build distinctive expertise. This year NUBS has established a new research centre The Neo-demographics Laboratory for Research in Business Analytics, which is globally focused with a core stream of activity centred upon Sub-Saharan Africa. Further, collaborations across School divisions and between established research centres have led to new research relevant to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), for example sustainable healthcare in developing economies, migrant employment, health and education and modern slavery.

We provide MSc and MBA CSR researchers to partner organisations to conduct research on projects of shared interest. Findings not only contribute to the MSc dissertations and the MBA Management Projects but our students also prepare short executive reports for the benefit of their host organisations.

the School hosts an annual series of high-profile speaking events, the Business Leaders Series, which are open to alumni, students, staff, and our business associates.
