About sustainable RSM
We recognize that a coupling of sustainable stewardship and individual responsibility are essential for creating sustainable business.
Sustainable RSM is an initiative of the business school providing leadership, consultation and support for co-curricular learning opportunities supporting the best in society, environment and economy. RSM is actively committed to demonstrating and disseminating theories, models, and practices that reinforce the connection between sustainable environments and value creation. Sustainable RSM provides direct experience for students to gain knowledge and skills in out-of-the-classroom projects, events and activities; practicing stewardship and responsibility.
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 enroled student through alumni status, students benefit from the integration of classroom education and out-of-class learning experiences on these targeted topics.
RSM’s primary focus is on developing business leaders with international careers who can become a force for positive change by carrying their innovative mindset into a sustainable future. Our first-class range of bachelor, master, MBA, PhD and executive programmes encourage them to become critical, creative, caring and collaborative thinkers and doers. RSM has adopted the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals as a reference framework.
Research and valorisation
Sustainable RSM also serves as a bridge for RSM researchers to partner with two global research networks: the Network for Business Sustainability (NBS) and the Alliance for Research on Corporate Sustainability (ARCS). This sparks rigorous academic research and valorisation aiming to shape management practice, proactive engagement and leadership in the business sector.
