Looking forward towards 2030
Business Schools wanting to uphold the principle of Responsible Management Education, will find the recent report by the United Nations: Transforming Business, Changing the World a useful reminder about why it is critically important to raise the profile of sustainability amongst undergraduates.
Business undergraduates still undoubtedly need to learn business fundamentals and gain as much ‘real’ industry exposure as they can, but neither students nor academics can shy away from challenges that future business leaders will need to deal with in the current climate changing era.
To achieve the aim of promoting sustainability topics in the curriculum my Business School have developed a career-focused business and management programme, with an ethos of ethics and sustainability. The programme incorporates extensive work placements with an exclusive opportunity to customise your degree by choosing modules designed to inspire the next generation of business graduates. The programme is BSc Business.
The BSc Business programme is distinctive from most undergraduate degrees because we cover topics relating to responsible business, business ethics and the role of business in society.
Based at our Penryn Campus, Cornwall, the programme is designed to help you develop a set of graduate skills and attributes which are hugely relevant to 21st century businesses, from a local and global perspective. This will prepare you for a professional career in a wide range of sectors including; e-commerce, business analytics, marketing, manufacturing and/or wholesale, management relations, environmental consultancy or social enterprise.
If you are a student or an academic who also recognises that sustainability is critical to business success and is excited by the challenge ahead, please do get in touch.
