Delivering Responsible Business Education as the New Norm
Business schools have an extraordinary opportunity and obligation to reflect on their own practices and ensure they educate socially responsible leaders. They are coming under growing pressure from students, employers and faculty alike to enhance their focus on responsible business education in their teaching, research and operations. For example, schools are being criticised for curriculum content that is still based around the ‘shareholder primacy’ model and the pursuit of short-term returns rather than the long-term strategies needed to address issues such as inequality or climate change.
As a follow-up to the recent Financial Times and InTent webinar on “The growing case for responsible business education”, InTent will host a discussion between schools, leading businesses and key networks to identify the key levers to make business education the new norm
- What are the main implementation challenges to fully integrate responsible business into core curriculums?
- What makes the business sector consider business schools important and how do they seek to incentivize them to do more? What metrics should they rely on?
- What efforts are being deployed to create platforms for business schools to share resources and experiences to make responsible business education the new norm?
