マンチェスター大学(University of Manchester) による Managing Responsibly: Practicing Sustainability, Responsibility and Ethics の受講者のレビューおよびフィードバック



Managers are increasingly confronted with issues of sustainability, responsibility and ethics. Managing responsibly is an integrative approach to sustainability, responsibility and ethics, which allows you as a manager to deal competently with such challenges. This course will facilitate your learning process to engage in changing practices to make them more sustainable, responsible, and ethically informed. We will first introduce the context of the trend towards responsible management practices (week 1). We then explore the basics of each set of issues, sustainability (week 2), responsibility (week 3), and ethics (week 4). In week 5 you will work on your own responsible management issue/task and explore responsible management practices in an area of professional interest (e.g. strategy, entrepreneurship, innovation, organization, operations, supply chain, human resources, marketing and communication, international management, accounting and finance). In week 6 we will try to understand and experience what managing responsibly means in practice, including opportunities and challenges, and with a focus on transformative change. During these last two weeks you will work in a problem-oriented way, based on a challenging topic you have come across in your own management practice. In the course we will form multicultural teams to learn about problems you bring forward. The course also facilitates the formation of peer networks that allow you to continue this learning experience after finishing the MOOC. The MOOC is an initiative in collaboration with the UN-supported Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) initiative. Overall Learning Outcomes 1) To provide an introduction to the three constituting fields of managing responsibly: sustainability, responsibility and ethics. 2) To help apply the knowledge and insights gained from these three fields to real life problems in your own setting. 3) To identify, understand and facilitate individual action that can lead to change at the organisational and system level ‘act is to move’ 4) To learn to appreciate and bring together different points of view, and negotiate collective solutions to pressing problems. Who is this MOOC for? (Recommended Background) While this course is primarily designed for executives who want to work on particular responsible management issues and create responsible management practices, also advanced business students will find it helpful. Suggested Readings There are no specific required texts. However, the contents and assignments of this course have been based on the following book which might be helpful as complementary materials: Laasch, Oliver, and R. Conway (2014). Principles of responsible management: Global sustainability, responsibility and ethics, Cengage Learning: Mason....




This was a fantastic course to learn responsible management of business. The contents was grounded deep in theory and illustrated by sharing experience of many business leaders from a diverse field.



The course was designed in a way where it is strongly scaffolded to assist the learners towards an in-depth understanding of the responsibility, sustainability and ethical management.

A well structured course providing interesting insights into both the academic and practical side of responsible, ethical and sustainable management. The opportunity and encouragement to connect with likeminded individuals around the globe is also an excellent component of the course.

It was a very insgighful course for me as a student, to understand what it means to work as a sustainability manager, or CSR manager. I gained the basic knowledge around sustainability, responsibity and ethics and I more confident to enter this career.

really helpful broad based program, and helped to drawn some complex issues together for me. My only comment would be some of the videos are very long and would benefit from being edited into sections for easier digesting.

Enriching experience. Getting to understand in detail topics like sustainability, ethics and responsibility was a great opportunity for me: being a responsible manager means applying SRE principles on daily basis.

Overall a good course, which should make anyone reflect more about these topics, which are sometimes left behind, comparing to profit objectives of the companies.

The topic has a lot of potential however, the university was not able to live upto it. In my opinion, there should be more content in it rather than just interviews to show up. Furthermore, to be honest the content for only week 3 and 4 were decent. Also, there are much better courses out on sustainability via University of Pennselvania and Bocconi ( i have completed both ) :)

some contents were amazing but I would have willingly missed some.
