MBA student listed in the top 10 for PRME writing competition
PRME Chapter UK and Ireland's Responsible Business and Management annual writing competition allows students to share their insights about managing responsible business.
We are proud to announce that Deepa Narayana, current MBA student, has been listed in the top 10 finalists of the PRME Chapter UK and Ireland's Responsible Business and Management Writing Competition.
PRME Chapter UK and Ireland's Responsible Business and Management Writing Competition 2017-18 is an annual competition which allows students to share their insights about managing responsible business. The competition is judged by a panel of academics from around UK.
Business and Management students were encouraged to contribute to a range of topics such as ethics of business, responsible marketing and ethical consumption. The essays were judged according to the intellectual challenge related to the topic, engagement of students’ voice and quality of research.
This comes just months after Nottingham Business School was named one of three new UK Champions in Davos.
Deepa commented "My essay analysed the sustainability report of a leading oil and natural gas company, assessing its stakeholder practices, sustainability reporting practices using the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) standards and the company’s contribution to SDG-13, that deals with urgent action to combat climate change.
I hope this is just the start on the path of sustainability for me and hope to research more such issues in the future. I am thankful to PMRE and NTU to have provided a platform for students like me and others to contribute to important issues such as environment and sustainability as I believe this will inspire students from across the country to find innovative, well-suited and sustainable solutions to real world problems such as the global energy crisis."
