Building from the success and learnings from our Business Not As Usual strategy, we believe the time is right to refresh our thinking and transition to our next phase - Business Not As Usual 2.0 - to help shape a better future for our students, staff, partners and the broader community.
The University of Sydney Business School became a signatory of the United Nations Global Compact, Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME), in February 2016 and became an Advanced signatory in May 2019.
The vision is to systemically transform business and management education beyond the model maximising value for shareholders towards responsible management education, research and thought leadership.
Our first progress report, 'Becoming an advocate for responsible management education' (pdf, 4.5MB), was submitted on 12 February 2018.
Our second progress report, 'Transforming management education beyond shareholder primacy' (pdf, 11MB), was submitted on 28 January 2020.
We will continue to use this platform to champion much-needed change and to transform the narrative of traditional business and management education in order to develop tomorrow's responsible business leaders.
Our research, educational and extra-curricular activities have been linked to the seventeen United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, to demonstrate the Business School's commitment to the initiatives mission.
