NI Business and Human Rights Student Ambassador Programme

NI Business and Human Rights Student Ambassador Programme

The Northern Ireland Business and Human Rights Student Ambassador Programme is a collaborative initiative between Queen’s Management School (QMS) and the Northem Ireland Business and Human Rights Forum (NIBHRF). The purpose of the Programme is to equip students with the knowledge and skills to act as ambassadors to promote ethics and human rights within business during both their academic studies and future professional careers. The programme is open to students at any level from across Queen’s University.

The Programme is based upon three elements which must be fulfilled for the student to be put forward for DegreePlus accreditation:

  • EDUCATE: Participation in three interactive half-day workshops organised by QMS and NIBHRF exploring issues around human rights, business ethics, sustainabilit, and responisble management. 
  • ENGAGE: Attendance at two events, for example, meetings of the NIBHRF,  the UK Global Goals Roadshow, or any other relevant activities as approved by QMS and the the NIBHRF.
  • ENCOURAGE: Organisation and delivery of a student-led activity at the QUB Development Weeks held in May/June. This may include, but is not limited to, a talk, mini conference, or workshop open to students from across the University.

In addition, students will be required to complete a reflective workbook in order to demonstrate the knowledge and skills they have developed over the course of the Programme.

Further information about Queen’s Management School’s work in relation to Ethics, Responsibility, and Sustainability can be accessed on their website.
