The 9th Annual ARCS Research Conference was held June 14-16, 2017 at the Rotterdam School of Management (RSM), Erasmus University, the Netherlands.
We’re excited to announce that, for the first time, the ARCS Annual Research Conference was held outside of the United States. The conference chair was Frank Wijen, Associate Professor of Strategic Management at the Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University. The conference brought together scholars from a variety of disciplinary and methodological perspectives interested in advancing research on corporate sustainability. ARCS is a consortium of universities and individuals, and serves as a professional society of scholars studying the interface between business and sustainability. ARCS provides data, tools, and networking opportunities to researchers who are developing a greater understanding of the opportunities and limits of policies and strategies to foster sustainable business.
RSM is committed to promoting corporate sustainability and high ethical standards in research, teaching, and service. We have faculty and staff members who dedicate themselves to embedding these issues into coursework and extracurricular activities. We want to ensure that our students understand and acknowledge that their managerial decisions profoundly affect society, and it is our ambition that our graduates will be equipped to make sustainable business decisions.
As part of ARCS’ mission to foster first-rate research and build the community of scholars in this domain, we hold an annual research conference designed to bring together scholars interested in corporate sustainability strategy and management. The inaugural conference was held in 2009, hosted by the Erb Institute for Global Sustainable Enterprise at the University of Michigan. The conference rotates annually among ARCS members.
