A major global survey of students across the world shows an overwhelming demand for more attention on business ethics, sustainability and responsible management in business school curriculum.
The Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) and Associate Professor Debbie Haski-Leventhal from Macquarie Graduate School of Management (MGSM) have collaborated for the third time in conducting an international study on business students around the world and their attitudes towards responsible management education and corporate social responsibility (CSR). The previous studies, conducted in 2012 and 2014 revealed a growing interest and support among students towards these issues, but the current study demonstrates an even higher demand among students towards responsible management education.
Nearly 1800 students responded to the online survey, mainly from Brazil, India, the US, Spain, Canada, Mexico and Australia. 46% of the respondents were females and the average age was 27. For the first time, this round included undergraduate students (31%) and 37% were doing their MBA. About 1 in 4 students were already working in a managerial position.
