The Council on Business & Society (CoBS) welcomes Stellenbosch Business School, South Africa, to the alliance. Now totalling 8 member schools, the addition of our new member gives the CoBS firm anchorage in Asia-Pacific, Europe, South America and now Africa.
The CoBS welcomes this prestigious triple crown accredited institution whose teaching and research – focusing on responsible leadership, diversity and inclusion, social enterprise and entrepreneurship – is perfectly aligned with the CoBS mission and purpose.
