Human rights climb the business school curriculum
The Financial Times article “Human rights climb the business school curriculum” highlights the role of human rights in business education.
Prof. Dorothee Baumann-Pauly says in this article that integrating human rights in the business school curriculum must “become the new way of teaching to create value for business and society”.
Together with the NYU Stern Center for Business and Human Rights, the Geneva Center for Business and Human Rights is pioneering the institutionalization of human rights at business schools.
To integrate human rights in core programs at the University of Geneva, the Geneva School of Economics and Management inaugurates a new MSc in Responsible Management program in the fall 2021. Its objective is to prepare future leaders for the management challenges of the 21st century. The program offers a unique specialization on sustainable business and human rights.
To further advance human rights in business education, Prof. Dorothee Baumann-Pauly, Prof. Michael Posner, director of the NYU Stern Center for Business and Human Rights, and Prof. Ken McPhail from the Alliance Manchester Business School created the Global Business School Network for Human Rights in 2016. Last year, the network joined forces with the Global Business School Network (GBSN) and the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) and it currently comprises over 100 business schools from around the world.
