Top Business School Deans Meet in Paris to Discuss Corporate Social Responsibility

Late last month in Paris, the dean of Dartmouth’s Tuck School of Business convened a roundtable discussion of deans of top schools about the current state of corporate social responsibility and government regulation as it impacts business education, Tuck announced.

Deans from five of the world’s top business schools – Japan’s Keio Business School, China’s School of Management Fudan University, Germany’s University of Mannheim Business School and France’s ESSEC Business School – joined Tuck Dean Paul Danos for the event, the sixth of its kind designed to encourage cooperation and the exchange of ideas between leading business schools from around the globe.

This is the second year the meeting has taken place in Paris. Other locations have included Sao Paolo and Shanghai, among others, and previous topics have ranged from the effects of globalization on business schools to a comparison of local education systems versus international models.

During this year’s discussion, held at ESSEC, the deans addressed topics including how to educate socially responsible business leaders, social responsibility in corporations and government regulation and business.

Tuck has sustained international outreach in a variety of ways in recent years, including through this roundtable series, the school reports. Other initiatives include the Tuck Ambassador Program, the Tuck Global Consultancy project, learning expeditions and the MBA Fellows Program.
