Sustainable Development, CRS (Corporate Social Responsibility) and SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) at the heart of KEDGE strategy.
Building a sustainable and responsible world is our raison d'être at KEDGE. We support companies and their future managers to lead and anchor the necessary changes.
Our vocation: to empower current and future leaders to adopt ethical, innovative and inclusive approaches.
The impact of CSR and SDGs on education
In each department (finance, marketing, strategy, information systems, management), there is a community of professors who apply the Sustainable Development Goals to their research and teaching. Thus, all KEDGE programmes (KEDGE Bachelor, Programme Grande Ecole, International BBA programme, International EBP) include content related to sustainable development issues, CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) and SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) delivered through main courses such as sustainable development, marketing, finance or complexity but also through a large number of specific modules taught across all disciplines.
There are also dedicated programmes such as the Msc specialising in sustainable finance. This master's degree in responsible finance trains professionals with a perfect command of financial tools who are committed to integrate new ethical, ecological and societal challenges into their vision.
In more general terms, the Faculty has set itself an ambitious objective. By 2025, it intends to disseminate Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in all courses in order to enable students to better perceive the societal, social and ecological impacts linked to each discipline, but above all to be in a position to become agents of change in their future careers.
However, the SDGs commitment extends well beyond the courses; the student experience is promoted through Pro-Acts (student projects) with over 200 projects directly linked to SDGs, or sponsored by student associations. 100% of the associations have integrated at least one Sustainable Development Goal and 20% of them are directly linked to one or more SDGs.
Together with the CSR department, the SDG Faculty group seeks to constantly enrich the student experience. In the long run, this should enable them to make their careers and personal lives more meaningful as they commit themselves to a more ethical world.
