The month of June 2021 marks the 10th anniversary of the Council on Business & Society (CoBS), which now counts seven member schools of business and management, all triple-crown accredited and leaders and educational pioneers in their respective countries.
As leading educational institutions in our respective countries, the member schools of the Council on Business & Society have a direct local and national impact on issues such as job and career prospects for our graduates and executive education, providing industry with talented individuals, offering engagement with – and economic value to – our local communities and giving knowledge and insight to policy-makers and governments at the highest level. Internationally, our alumni – some 231,000 among the seven member schools – work on every continent in leading corporations, government bodies, institutions and NGOs and, in many cases, have created employment and innovation through their entrepreneurial talent.
