Corporate responsibility and sustainability are now fundamental concerns for every organisation. As a University for the Common Good, we are playing a key role in the global transformation of business management education. We seek to address the complex challenges of the global economy in the 21st century, while delivering social benefit to local and global communities.
We are particularly pleased that our success at embedding ethics, responsibility and sustainability across all aspects of life at Glasgow School for Business and Society has been acknowledged through our membership in ASHOKA U, United Nations Global Compact and PRME, as well as local initiatives such as WRAP and Business in the Community.
We have also become the first university in Scotland to join the prestigious EPAS global network. I welcome this recognition of our high quality learning and teaching experience that equips our graduates with the skills and knowledge to succeed in the global market. The EPAS accreditation is indicative of a wider institutional commitment to use the very highest international benchmarks to evidence the quality of our provision. This provides robust reassurance to our staff, students, academic and business partners that we are a globally-networked university that is embedded within our local community.
We challenge our staff and students to be critical and independent learners, to become responsibility leaders and to make positive contributions to business and society. We’d invite you to join us in our commitment to the Common Good.
