First, the program combines a practical business education with a commitment to the Principles of Responsible Management Education (PRME) as developed by the United Nations to support its Global Compact. As the first small liberal arts universities in the nation to sign the Global Compact, Virginia Wesleyan University takes pride in offering a course of study which embraces and promotes ethical business practices in such areas as human rights, labor, the environment, and anti-corruption.
Second, the program provides students with the skills and knowledge to function well in a global economy which is increasingly characterized by integrative, quickly changing market forces and business functions. In keeping with the PRME guidelines for best practices in management education, the program incorporates a long-term, holistic systems approach with a pedagogy that emphasizes research, encourages partnerships, and spurs “dialogue and debate among students, business, government, consumers,…and other interested groups and stakeholders on critical issues related to global social responsibility and sustainability.”
Third, the program equips leaders with a clear knowledge of advanced management practices which incorporate traditional frameworks from accounting, economics, and social sciences to make realistic and financially rewarding decisions in areas such as supply chain management, marketing, and strategic planning, Thus, students not only understand the roles of environmental sustainability and social responsibility but are grounded in practical business practices that promote profitability via the use of tools such as the triple bottom line.
Fourth, since the need for ethical practices in global commerce demands innovative and integrative systems, a recurring theme throughout the program is creating and supporting sustainable supply chain systems. From raw materials through manufacturing, distributing, and repurposing or recycling, students explore functional areas such as inventory management, transportation, and “green” practices in supply chain management.
