Embedding ethics, sustainability and responsibility in blended curriculum

 Wednesday 11 April 2018 at 1-2pm


As business schools we have a great responsibility to develop ethical and mindful leaders of the future. This understanding is supported by accreditation bodies such as AACSB and EQUIS and underpinned by the UN PRME (Principles of Responsible Management Education). The question is how can we embed ethics, sustainability and responsibility in our curriculum beyond merely adding modules and influence and change behaviour and mindset of our future leaders to become ethical responsible citizens?

Part of our Teaching Development Programme, we are delighted to welcome Grace McCarthy, Associate Professor and Dean of Sydney Business School (CML and UGPN partner) to share her experiencing of embedding ethics, sustainability and responsibility in PG MBA curriculum.

Followed by a conversation with Grace McCarthy and Zeineb Cox (SBS Ethics and PRME lead) on embedding ESR more widely in UG and PG curriculum, chaired by Christine Rivers.

We welcome all staff and particularly programme directors and leaders.
