BI Norwegian Business School’s Centre for Sustainability and Energy hosts 30-minute inspirational sustainability talks on "why" and "how" to teach sustainability and responsibility in business schools.

This time, BI professor Caroline Dale Ditlev-Simonsen will talk with professor Ron Tuninga, new Vice President Europe, Middle East and Africa in AACSB. AACSB is one of the leading accreditation bodies for business schools. Mr. Tuninga has been a Dean in the UK, the Netherlands and Denmark. He is the former Pro-Vice Chancellor and Dean of the Business School at Kingston University London. Professor Tuninga has lectured extensively both in North and South America, Europe, Asia and has been involved in multiple accreditation processes during his career.

Mr. Tuninga will talk about how accreditations can support development of sustainability teaching and share how the updated 2020 AACSB accreditation standards can support schools in increasing sustainability teaching, and thus their societal impact. He will share some examples on sustainability teaching and societal impact developments from recently accredited schools.

Why is this talk relevant?

To solve today’s dire societal challenges, we need leaders who are able to generate purpose, ethics, system-thinking, interdisciplinary innovations and societal impact. International businesses and global associations are urging management educators to transform programmes and courses to deliver the kind of leadership that the world needs.

Are business schools too slow to transform curriculum, pedagogies and incentive structures to develop our future leaders? If so, how can they speed up?
