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. 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 students are involved in building and establishing initiatives during their studies at EU Business School.

A Helping Hand
We are working with local organizations to improve the infrastructure of Yirwal, a West African village, 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 and empowering women entrepreneurs, we have improved village conditions for the community particularly for children. Easy access to water is improving attendance at the local school. Currently, we are planning a training center to prepare young people for work.
