MSM shares its expertise on "Incorporating Sustainability into your Programs and Mission" at IACBE Annual Conference
MSM’s Dean Katalin Kovacs attended the IACBE Annual Conference held in Las Vegas in April 2019. During this conference Mrs. Kovacs presented in the panel Ideas for Incorporating Sustainability into your Programs and Mission alongside Florencia Librizzi, previous Senior Manager for the PRME Secretariat and Dilip Mirchandani, Professor & Chair in Management & Entrepreneurship at Rohrer College of Business, Rowan University.
The panel discussion, moderated by Paul Szwed, Professor & Chair in International Maritime Business at the Massachusetts Maritime Academy, was centered around the 2030 agenda for Sustainable Development. The topics covered in the discussion were: the overview and scale of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the action and examples institutions could embrace and the problems that business schools face during implementation. Ms. Kovacs talked about the MSM example and how a relatively small-scale institution achieved quite a lot in a short period of time. MSM’s latest PRME report is available on: http://www.unprme.org/reports/MSMPRMEResponsibleManagementEducationreport2017181.pdf.
MSM is one of the four founding chapter members of the France-Benelux PRME Chapter and currently member of the steering group. The PRME is a United Nations-led initiative to raise the profile of sustainability around the world in an effort to develop and prepare today’s business students for the challenges of the future.
Mrs. Kovacs strongly advised the attendees to not set too ambitious goals and encouraged them to start with smaller steps as they go along the route to address all SDGs at their institutions and in their programs.
