Sharing Information on Progress (2012)
This is the Sharing Information on Progress (SIP) report of the Kemmy Business School at University of Limerick, Ireland. This is our second report, and we are pleased to renew our commitment to the PRME
Sharing Information on Progress (2010)
This report takes the 6 principles and outlines the activities and actions in the Kemmy Business School in 2009/10 which demonstrated commitment to the PRME principles. These ranged from contributions to modules on sustainable development, delivery of a module on CSR to Executive MBA students; EPAS (European Programme Accreditation System) award for 2 key programmes: BBS and MSc in HRM; fifteen faculty members made a positive contribution to honouring the PRME values.
Achievements Curriculum Integration in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
We have very significantly expanded the range and quantity of courses focused on CSR and business ethics. These are now part of our executive MBA, our MSc Programmes in Taxation, Risk and Insurance, Financial Services and Computational Finance, as well as the BA in Management and the BSc in Energy. The concepts are also an integral part of other KBS subjects, particularly strategy, organisational behaviour, entrepreneurship, HRM, accounting and taxation.
With this increased focus has come a wider range of research on social issues, increased engagement with the local and business community and a more structured student volunteer programme.
Achievements Research Development in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
In 2012 we see a big increase in research output, and the publication of the first book of its kind focusing on Irish experiences of CSR: “Corporate Social Responsibility: a Guide with Irish Experiences”, published by a KBS faculty member. We expect far more activity in this area over the coming years.
