Our mission “DBS is a Catalyst for positive change” reflects our commitment to ensure SDG’s are at the forefront of our agenda and strategic plans
DBS was recognised by the UN PRME secretariat for Excellence in Sharing Information on Progress (SIP) report in 2020. This SIP Recognition highlights the significant achievements in our work with the Six Principles of higher education set by the PRME.
DBS staff contributed to the Blueprint (BP) for Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Integration in Business Schools as research and curriculum leads. The BP is a step-by- step guide for all Business Schools to implement SDGs.
DBS is actively involved in the advancement of knowledge on SDG integration in management education by creating and disseminating knowledge n SDGs. Examples includes:
- Special Issue on the SDGs in Marketing published in Australasian Marketing Journal in Feb 2022.
- Special issue of Social Business on SDGs across research and curricula published in 2018
