Business Ethics at Durham University Business School
The Business School prides itself on the way Ethics Responsibility and Sustainability (ERS) are integrated across all its research, teaching and outreach activities. ERS is one of the three strategic transversal themes, alongside internationalisation and external engagement. In addition to ERS being integrated in the curriculum of all our programmes, it constitutes a key research area across most research centres. The business school is a proud member of the UN's PRME (a full report can be found here https://www.dur.ac.uk/resources/business/PRMESIP2020FINAL.pdf), the Academy of Business in Society (ABIS), and the North East's Initiative for Business Ethics (NIBE). Finally the University holds the Bronze Athena SWAN award.
