Tuck Convenes Top Business School Deans to Discuss Corporate Social Responsibility at Paris Roundtable
Source Newsroom: Dartmouth College, Tuck School of Business
Newswise — Deans from five of the world’s top business schools convened in Paris to provide a global perspective on how the current state of corporate social responsibility and government regulation is affecting business education.
This is the sixth time Dean Paul Danos of the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth has organized the roundtable discussion, which follows last year’s meeting in Sao Paulo. The event encourages cooperation and the exchange of ideas between the world’s top business schools.
This is the latest edition in a series of global meetings, and the second occasion the discussion has taken place in Paris. Previous topics have covered issues such as the effects of globalization on business schools, and a comparison of local education systems versus international models. In Shanghai the participants discussed the current state and future directions of management education in China.
This year the deans exchanged their views on the following topics:
• Educating Socially Responsible Business Leaders; Social Responsibility in Corporations; Government Regulation and Business
Although corporate social responsibility has been on the periphery of business in the past, it is more likely to be central to corporate decision-making in the future and is becoming an integral part of business education programs. See: www.councilonbusinessandsociety.com
