Results of the BGA accreditation have been of great help in identifying areas where to improve against the UN SDGs and general sustainability issues.
Following the accreditation, the school revised its strategic plan for 2021-24. Revised mission ‘JSBE – Supporting Competitive, Digital, and Sustainable Transformation in Business and Economy’ highlights JSBE’s continuing commitment to be a force for good in the society supporting transformation.
The school also added descriptions of sustainability content to all relevant school courses when renewing the curricula of all degree programmes for 2020-23. Currently, over 30% of JSBE’s courses at all levels, from Bachelor’s to Master’s, Doctoral and Executive MBA studies, include sustainability content.
Lastly, the schools plans to follow the panel’s advice to strengthen the sustainability content of studies further by deepening collaboration with partners who possess knowledge in areas outside of the business school’s expertise; this will be used to strengthen JSBE’s quality of research in the field of business and sustainability.
