A GLOBAL NETWORK OF BUSINESS SCHOOLS

We are creating a network of business schools to advance human rights in business education.

Global integration, political uncertainty and growing inequality have increased public scrutiny of business operations. Business schools need to better prepare future leaders for the challenges of this modern global business environment. They also need to demonstrate that the values and principles of their education are aligned with public expectations that business contribute to a fair and prosperous global economy.

This will require moving beyond dedicated business ethics or corporate social responsibility classes to a model that incorporates social considerations into the core of business curricula. We are working with business schools around the world to realize this vision.

Annual meeting 

Each year, the NYU Stern Center for Business and Human Rights, the Business & Human Rights Catalyst at Alliance Manchester Business School, and the Geneva School of Economics and Management co-host a meeting in Geneva that brings together business school scholars interested in expanding human rights teaching and research in business schools.

Together we are developing a toolkit to support better integration of human rights into business school curricula. Past meeting agendas and participants can be found here and here.

upcoming meeting

The next meeting of the global business school network will take place on Nov. 25, 2019 in Geneva. Interested business school representatives are invited to join. Please email the Center's research director, Dorothée Baumann-Pauly (dorobaumann@gmail.com)
