The sustainability work at LUSEM


As a research-driven and comprehensive school of economics and management, LUSEM’s approach to engaging students in confronting, integrating, and reflecting on issues related to ethics, responsibility and sustainability is anchored in academic work in fields such as corporate social responsibility, social innovation, social entrepreneurship, sustainable finance, and behavioural economics. Being introduced to these issues early on is an important impetus for students to naturally adopt a responsible mind-set in their future roles as decision makers and experts.

At LUSEM, we strive to integrate these issues in teaching on all levels, from the introductory level to the PhD level. The enthusiasm and interest consistently shown by LUSEM students in issues related to ethics, responsibility and sustainability is a core building block in the School’s endeavour to educate high-skilled change agents who will contribute to sustainable development and responsible business practices.

While much of the core foundation has been in place for a number of years, recent developments include on-going renewal of the educational offering, a number of large research projects centered around sustainability issues, and a major collaborative undertaking in the form of the Sustainable Future Hub and the Changemaker Future Track.

At LUSEM we are strongly committed to conducting everyday activities in accordance with the standards that the School is founded upon and on the principles that our students are taught. This is an ongoing process and we are committed to continuous progress. In this process, we benefit greatly from our engagement with parties from practice and partner academic institutions nationally and internationally.

LUSEM’s commitment to responsible behaviour is reflected not the least in our membership in PRME.
