Ethical Corporation, in association with EABIS, has just published a review of corporate responsibility education.
“Companies today are operating in a global business environment perhaps more complex and demanding than at any point in history. To meet this demand, management education will have to evolve from being tactical and instrument-oriented programmes – that preach the deeply institutionalised mantra that the “business of business is business” – to ones that give managers practical and real strategic insight into the cultural, economic and political environments in which they operate”. With contributions from faculty from all over the world, including that of Bryan Husted, this is just another source which confirms the strategic importance of corporate responsibility on education.
McKinsey, as we have previously posted, has addressed this issue with a survey on what business executives think in regards to Corporate Responsibility as well as a study of Social Issues from a strategic point of view.
I couldn’t agree more with Professor Gilbert Lenssen on the report’s conclusion: Companies need mangers who can address these issues, not only through an isolated CSR department, but incorporating it across the firm as a strategic competitive advantage.
