ESSEC Business School, a founding member of the Council on Business & Society, welcomes Trinity College Dublin Business School, Ireland, as the sixth member of the global alliance.
The Council on Business & Society (CoBS), a unique, international alliance dedicated to promoting responsible leadership to its students and executive participants via its faculty research and teaching expertise in the fields of Corporate Social Responsibility and Corporate Shared Value, welcomes Trinity College Dublin Business School as its newest member. Trinity College joins the Council alongside founding members ESSEC Business School (France, Singapore, Morocco); Keio Business School (Japan); FGV-EAESP (Brazil); School of Management Fudan University (China); and Warwick Business School (UK) who joined the Responsible Leadership Alliance in June 2018.
Created in 2011, and reflecting the inherent multicultural and humanist approach of its founding schools, the Council has been at the forefront of many issues that have become of primordial importance today: responsible and ethical leadership, sustainability, business for the common good via entrepreneurship and social innovation, and impact investment, among others.
According to Vincenzo Vinzi, Dean and President of ESSEC Business School, “Trinity College Dublin Business School is a highly prestigious school that we are pleased to welcome to our alliance dedicated to responsible leadership. As CoBS members, we will ensure that the unique, international dimension of the Council and its faculty expertise in the field of CSR benefits not only our students and faculty, but also the wider good.”
The Council on Business & Society runs several interschool faculty-student initiatives in the field of CSR and offers the wider public free weekly and quarterly publications of its faculty’s cutting-edge research through its online community platform and its specialized magazine, Global Voice. Trinity faculty research will be featured in a special Europe issue of the Council’s magazine at the beginning of June. The Council members have already started developing projects and initiatives that will bring the faculty and students of the member schools together to work on common projects throughout the following academic year.
