Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is undertaken by businesses to ensure a safer tomorrow. Here at EU Business School, we integrate CSR in a number of ways. Most importantly, we lead by example, incorporating CSR into our business strategy and educational philosophy because we believe CSR contributions are integral to building a safe and prosperous tomorrow. We are proud to play our part by incorporating sustainable thinking into our curricula; educating students about modern developments and actively contributing to exciting green projects and development initiatives. We help our students develop socially responsible mindsets, creating both conscientious and successful leaders for tomorrow's business world. Learn more about our corporate partnerships and CSR initiatives below.
Our CSR Initiatives
We contribute to both global and local initiatives in each city with an EU campus: Barcelona, Geneva, Montreux and Munich.
A Helping Hand
Working together for development
We are working with local organizations to improve the infrastructure of West African village, Yirwal, located in Burkina Faso, a landlocked country where French is an official language. Thus far we have funded an ambulance, two flour mills and a water well. By improving the infrastructure of the village, we hope to improve village conditions, particularly for the children. Easy access to water and the workplaces are crucial for improving attendance at the local school. Currently, we are planning a training center to prepare young people for work.
Freude Herrscht Stiftung & Kofi Annan Foundation
The Kofi Annan Foundation mobilises political will to overcome threats to peace, development and human rights. The Foundation mobilises those who are in a position to influence and bring leadership to the world’s most pressing problems.
Freude Herrscht is dedicated to lending financial support to various programs and events that serve to promote a healthy degree of self-esteem and physical fitness to children.
Marianne Strauβ Stiftung
The Marianne Strauß Foundation was established in 1984 by her children to continue her legacy in helping the elderly, disadvantaged and handicapped. While this is its primary goal, the foundation increases awareness for grace of charity, personal responsibility and sense of family. Close cooperation with government agencies and other relief organizations enables the Marianne Strauß Foundation to help in cases that would otherwise exceed financial capabilities.
Our Corporate Partners
We believe that we can all go further together. Strategic corporate partnerships provide opportunities for cooperation and locally oriented support.
