About CBRD

    The Center for Business Research and Development (CBRD) is the research and advocacy arm of the Ramon V. del Rosario College of Business (RVRCOB) of De La Salle University (DLSU). As a signatory of the UN-backed Principles of Responsible Management Education (PRME), the RVRCOB has committed to promote the PRME principles. These principles encourage us, among others, to “engage in conceptual and empirical research that advances our understanding about the role, dynamics, and impact of corporations in the creation of sustainable social, environmental and economic value”, and to “facilitate and support dialogue and debate” among different stakeholders “on critical issues related to global social responsibility and sustainability.”
