Sustainable Development
Responsible Management

Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM) is committed to promoting global social responsibility, sustainability and the highest ethical standards in research, teaching and in every service we provide. We have faculty and staff members who dedicate themselves to embedding these issues into coursework, initiatives and school-wide activities. We partner with students, academics and people in business to be a force for positive change. We want to ensure that our students understand and acknowledge that their managerial and employee decisions profoundly affect society, the economy and environment. We desire to equip students with skills, knowledge and attitudes to make wise and critical decisions in sustainable business operations.
