Sharing Information on Progress (2018)
Period Covered: Jan 2016 to Jan 2018
The Sharing Information on Progress (SIP) Report of Turku School of Economics specifies our commitment to advancing the Six Principles of Responsible
Management Education in the programs that we offer, starting with those principles that we have indicated as the most relevant to our capacities and mission.
Achievements Curriculum Integration in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
In line with our mission to educate responsible leaders, during 2016-2018 we have developed our programs and curricula to further embed responsibility and foresight as a part of our students’ learning experiences. We have also taken some important steps towards a more systematic approach on teaching and learning about responsibility. This means that all our Bachelor and Master level programs and specializations now include a course that discusses responsibility.
In addition, we offer the following study modules available as minor subject studies on Responsibility, Ethics and Sustainable Development:
• Elective Studies on Responsible Business (25 ECTS)
• Studies on Responsible Business is a part of a multidisciplinary Studies on Sustainable Development (25 ECTS)
Achievements Research Development in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
TSE faculty participates in several large interdisciplinary research projects funded for instance by the Finnish government, the Finnish Funding Agency for Technology and Innovation (Tekes), and the Academy of Finland. Responsibility and sustainability related research is conducted across the various disciplines and departments within TSE. The bulk of this research is undertaken by the Finland Futures Research Centre (FFRC), where the research focus is on energy futures and sustainability transitions particularly in the energy context. Such research projects include initiatives that are connected with solving the globally identified ‘wicked problems’ that touch upon responsibility and sustainability.
