  • What is Responsible Business?

    Responsible Business is a core concept at the College of Business at CSUMB. We apply this concept by looking at business principles and challenges through the lens of the "Quintuple Bottom Line" with concern for Profit, People, Planet, Ethics, and Equity. Responsible Business goes beyond corporate social responsibility. Learn more by reading the article "What is Responsible Business?" by College of Business Executive-In-Residence, Kelly O'Brien, and COB Dean, Dr. Shyam Kamath, Ph.D.
