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.”

Keeping in mind DLSU’s mission “to be a leading learner-centered research university, bridging faith and scholarship in the service of society, especially the poor”, CBRD provides support to research programs and activities that address the following themes: responsible management education, multistream management approaches, humanistic management, ethical business practices, sustainable business practices, corporate social responsibility, corporate governance, social marketing, SME development, family business managment, and social entrepreneurship.
