To achieve our mission, together with being a truly distinctive business school with a clear sense of purpose, in 2016 we implemented our Business Not As Usual strategic plan (pdf, 448KB). As this plan has progressed, we are now focusing on five distinct pillars:
The University of Sydney Business School became a signatory of the United Nations Global Compact, Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME), in February 2016.
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.
The first progress report, 'Becoming an advocate for responsible management education' (pdf, 4.5MB), was submitted on 12 February 2018.
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.
