Led by EABIS’ President, Professor Gilbert Lenssen, it will feature “best practice” examples from leading business schools on the complex subject of corporate responsibility, institutional mainstreaming, and the accreditation standards. Among other aspects, the seminar will explore the alignment of CR with institutional, MBA and graduate programme development.

Through interactive case studies and small group work, the seminar will inform business schools holding or pursuing accreditation on approaches to embedding corporate responsibility into their core curriculum, mission and operations. Participants will have the chance to hear first-hand experiences, strategies and processes from EABIS member schools that have already met related accreditation requirements.

This advisory seminar is ideally positioned to support schools which are preparing to renew or apply for EQUIS accreditation. As such, the profile of participants will likely include accreditation officers, curriculum and programme directors, Deans’ advisors and senior faculty who will play an active role in this process within their school or university.
