Trinity College Dublin Business School, Ireland, becomes the 6th member of the Council on Business & Society, joining ESSEC Business School (France, Singapore, Morocco), Keio Business School (Japan), FGV-EAESP (Brazil), School of Management Fudan University (China) and Warwick Business School (UK) who joined the Responsible Leadership Alliance in June 2018. Trinity, one of the oldest and most respected educational institutions in the world, is home to Trinity Business School, very active in educational innovations at the crossroads of business and society, with a brand new campus in the heart of Dublin, and a very ambitious and bright future ahead of it.
The Council on Business & Society is a unique, international alliance dedicated to promoting responsible leadership to its students and executive participants via its faculty research and teaching expertise in the fields of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Corporate Shared Value (CSV). The Council’s schools are recognised as being among the world’s leading schools of management and business, each with several degree programmes repeatedly featuring in The FT and The Economist top 100 rankings.
Created in 2011, and reflecting the inherent multicultural and humanist approach of its founding schools, the Council was a forerunner in many issues that have become of primordial importance today: responsible and ethical leadership, sustainability, business for the common good via entrepreneurship and social innovation, and impact investment among others.
The Council on Business & Society runs several inter-school faculty-student initiatives in the field of CSR, as well as offering the wider public free weekly and quarterly publications of its faculty’s cutting-edge research made practical through its online Community platforms and magazine Global Voice.
Society has new expectations on how business should be done. Managers and leaders have new aspirations with respect to the purpose of corporations, and students want to give meaning to their lives and careers. The Council commits itself to replying to this new idea of the world we live in by bringing together leading academics, international institutions, policy makers, spokespersons from the non-profit sector and business leaders to offer knowledge and solutions to today’s major business and society issues.
