With its mission to be a force for positive change in the world, Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM) has established its reputation over 50 years as one of Europe’s most international and innovative business schools. RSM offers a portfolio of specialised master programmes including the MSc in Global Business & Sustainability: which teaches students how to embed sustainability into the core of business’ (international) operations, and how companies and NGOs can collaborate and partner to tackle societal grand challenges.
Since 2015, RSM has been using Prendo’s stakeholder engagement ‘pactio’ simulation in this Master in Global Business & Sustainability, with usually around 200 students that attend the programme.
“We use Prendo’s ‘pactio’ simulation every year in the capstone course Sustainability Grand Challenges of our Master Global Business & Sustainability. What makes the simulation so valuable is that it is not just another teaching activity in the programme, but a realistic and truly immersive experience of the dilemmas and opportunities inherent to stakeholder management. Our yearly session is smoothly facilitated by Prendo and students can immediately use the insights gained as input for the grand challenge they are studying in the course.”
