Students Take Part in IESE Business School’s Doing Good and Doing Well Conference
On Friday, 27 February 2015, students in the Business Administration and Production Systems Master’s programme participated in IESE Business School’s annual Doing Good and Doing Well Conference (DGDW).
Doing Good and Doing Well is a seminar on corporate responsibility organized and led by IESE Business School students. The conference includes lectures, roundtable discussions, case competitions, workshops, professional exchanges and networking events, all led by active professionals who share their own experiences on a specific topic.
Executives from international businesses, including IBM, BMW, Patagonia and Hystra, spoke on this year’s theme, which asked the question “What Is Responsible Business?” by analyzing the impact businesses have on today’s society and how companies’ missions need to change to create a more even-handed, responsible and sustainable society. During their presentations, the speakers shared examples of how they are meeting this challenge in their own businesses.
