We are delighted to have partnered with the University of Northumbria, Newcastle and to have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU).
Northumbria is one of the world’s top 50 Business School for Business Ethics publications and a United Nations PRIME (Principles for Responsibility in Management Education) Champion and with their support, we have a strong working relationship with each of the four other university business schools in the region.
Northumbria is the perfect partner to help us promote and drive the principles, and benefits, of acting ethically and responsibly – values that we know can deliver business success. These values also play an important role in helping to attract more businesses to come to the region and invest in jobs – simply because it is a good place in which to do business.
UNN and NIBE have collaborated on a series of `Responsible Business Seminars’ exploring how the North East can remain an open, tolerant and compassionate region while still competing in an increasingly global economy.
NIBE are delighted to sponsor the annual prize in the Best Dissertation in Ethical Business and in particular that the first award is made to Newcastle Business School graduating student Chloe Stephenson for her superb and highly insightful dissertation entitled: `Positive Use of Social Media Screening in the Recruitment Process to Highlight Recruitment’.
Chloe said: “It was an extremely interesting dissertation to work on. My aim was to help overcome some of the negative perceptions around social media, not just from businesses but from elsewhere in society as well, and to highlight how this can impact employment. I was thrilled to have received the award from NIBE – especially on the day of my graduation from Newcastle Business School.
