Global (Research) Networks

RSM joined the Global Business School Network (GBSN, pictured above) in 2020. Read our profile and our institutional contributions to the platform here. Below are research networks that RSM faculty, researchers, and doctoral students are encouraged to become members of.

Alliance for Research on Corporate Sustainability (ARCS)

ARCS serves as a vehicle for advancing rigorous academic research on corporate sustainability issues. ARCS provides data, tools and networking opportunities to researchers who are developing greater understanding of the opportunities and limits of policies and strategies to foster sustainable business. Rotterdam School of Management is one of 21 member institutions. Faculty members, doctoral students, and researchers at Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University are welcome to become ARCS individual members for a nominal fee. Membership is free to doctoral students.

Visit the ARCS website for more information.

Responsible Management Education

The School infuses the central themes from the UN Global Compact’s Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) into its curriculum, co-curricular activities, and initiatives; sensitising mindsets to benefit society, the economy and the environment from the perspective that sustainability is the foundation of business. From enrolment in the first RSM course through achieving alumni status, students benefit from the integration of classroom education and out-of-class learning experiences on these targeted topics.

Network for Business Sustainability (NBS)

Business sustainability encourages business to thrive in harmony with the economic, social and ecological systems upon which it relies. To make businesses sustainable, we must move beyond disciplinary, industry and professional silos. Through NBS, we unite a community of individuals and organizations from both research and industry, interested in using knowledge to advance business sustainability. By working together and using knowledge as the tool to bridge these silos, we can unlock a sustainable future.

Sustainable RSM is an active bridge between researchers, research centres of the School and NBS. Researchers are encouraged to be a member. Visit the NBS website for more information.
