European Symposium on Sustainability in Business Education, Research and Practices
February 23 - February 24
Many business schools are trying to adapt and appeal to students’ and recruiters’ demands to embrace social values and sustainability. At present, more and more business schools are integrating sustainability as a whole, and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in particular, into their core courses and MBA programmes, helping their graduates to become even more attractive to employers. Whereas integrating sustainability across all core business teachings is a logical step for impact-based business schools,it is unclear how best should this work be undertaken, and which approaches, methods and strategies may yield the highest impact.
The symposium will serve the purpose of discussing how sustainability may be incorporated in business education, in the research programmes of business schools, and in business practice as a whole. It is part of the “Accelerating the Implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals Series”, with events aimed at fostering the implementation of the UN SDGs.
