Developing Leaders for a Sustainable World.


The University of Guelph's College of Business and Economics is committed to inspiring and developing leaders for a sustainable world, who will use business as a tool to improve the essential elements of life - water, food, environment, health, community, culture and learning. 

As a Champion of the United Nations Principles for Responsible Management Education, we aim to better understand what corporate social responsibility and sustainability means within the context of business and what students can do to become leaders who inspire change and contribute to the UN's 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
