A unique alliance of leading business schools dedicated to the common good
The Council aims to be an alliance with global reach and an influential impact on tomorrow's responsible leaders at the crossroads of business and society.
The Council on Business & Society
Welcome to this unique adventure represented by the coming together of leading international business schools with a global reach. Society has new expectations on how business should be done. Managers and leaders have new aspirations with respect to the purpose of corporations. And students want to give meaning to their lives and careers.
Founded in June 2011, the CoBS is a community of leading schools of business and management around the world who want to engage their students, alumni, the business world and civil society in addressing this major and lasting change in their environment.
Through our individual and collective efforts, the Council's member schools create and disseminate knowledge for tomorrow's responsible business leaders. Join the Council and contribute to positively changing the world at the crossroads of business and society.
