Student Ambassador Programme
Are you ready to become an ambassador for ethics and human rights in business?
The Northern Ireland Business and Human Rights Student Ambassador Programme is a collaborative initiative between Queen’s Management School (QMS) and the Northern Ireland Business and Human Rights Forum. 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 and receive a certificate from QMS and the Forum:
- EDUCATE: Participate in three interactive half-day workshops organised by QMS and the Northern Ireland Business and Human Rights Forum exploring issues around human rights, business ethics, sustainability, and responsible management. The workshops will take place in October 2020, January 2021, and March 2021 (specific dates to be confirmed).
- ENGAGE: Attend two events, for example, meetings of the Northern Ireland Business and Human Rights Forum, the UK Global Goals Roadshow, or any other relevant activities as approved by QMS and the Forum.
- ENCOURAGE: Organise and deliver 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.
Places on the Student Ambassador Programme are limited and awarded on a competitive basis. Applications for the 2020-21 cohort will open on Friday 18 September 2020 and close on Wednesday 14 October 2020 at 5pm.
