Inspire to Impact
Inspire to Impact is a joint project of UN Global Compact, DNV, BISO Impact and BI, created on the conviction that the SDGs offer a myriad of business opportunities and solutions with great value to companies, society and the environment. Future leaders need to know how to develop and run private businesses and public sector in a more sustainable and future-oriented way.
Preparing the next generation of sustainable pioneers
BI aims to give their students the understanding of business, the knowledge, and the strategies needed to make enduring sustainable change in business and society.
Equipping graduates with mindset, knowledge and skills
With increased recognition among governments and businesses for change to align with the 1.5℃ scenario, comes an urgent demand for new mindsets and strategies in employees. This is why science-based targets are important and why the BI strategy aligns with the Norwegian government’s commitment to the 1.5℃ scenario. We are developing knowledge and skills in students that today’s leaders need in order to bring business and society forward” says the President. In order to do this, BI has integrated the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into the learning goals for all programs and offers specialized lectures, courses, and study programs within sustainability as well.
This inclusion of the SDGs throughout BI aims to equip students with knowledge and skills on how the business school disciplines can be a force for good. Students leave BI not only with a desire to make positive change, but also with the tools to make it happen.
