About us


We understand sustainability in broad terms as relating to economic, social/ethical and environmental perspectives. We do this through research, teaching and collaboration with external organisations.

Our purpose, ultimately, is to advance scholarship and contribute to positive social change in terms of the contemporary challenges of poverty alleviation, social injustice and climate change.   

We have particular strengths in our research in terms of business ethics, corporate social responsibility (CSR), sustainability accounting and marketing ethics. Besides our extensive global academic partnerships we collaborate and study private sector businesses (both large firms and small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs), cooperatives, social enterprises, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), supply chains, policy makers, professional associations and the local community. 

Our flagship courses are the postgraduate and undergraduate levels through the MSc Sustainability & Management and the BSc Management with Sustainability.
