Business Education

Through our research and teaching, development of teaching resources, and events for business scholars, we help prepare the next generation of leaders to address human rights responsibly.

Since launching the first human rights center at a business school in 2013, we have established partners such as the Geneva Center for Business and Human Rights and co-founded a network of allies at other business schools who work with us on the integration of human rights into business school education.

Building a Global Network of Business Schools
We are taking the lead in forming an international network of business schools that include human rights in their curricula.
Convening Scholars
Academic conferences create opportunities to encourage and shape new research on business and human rights (BHR). We co-organize two annual BHR conferences and participate in many more.
Resources for Teaching Business & Human Rights
Through academic articles, books, teaching cases, and research briefs, we are deepening the information available about the most pressing human rights issues facing business.

Business and Human Rights From Principles to Practice
First Textbook on Business and Human Rights Aims to Close the Educational Gap for Next Generation of Leaders

As part of its work to educate the world’s future business leaders, the NYU Stern Center for Business and Human Rights today released the first comprehensive, interdisciplinary textbook on the human rights challenges facing businesses – and how to approach solutions.
