In January 2009, the Center for Business and Society at CEU Business School launched a new research project based on the assumption that by extending the general concept of CSR it is possible to find a suitable framework to involve business organizations in the solution of complex social issues. In order to develop and test the hypothesis, one such complex issue has been selected: substance abuse (i.e. problem drinking, illicit drug use, prescription drug misuse). In late 2013, the results of the research were published in an article in the peer reviewed US based journal Substance Use and Misuse. (Radacsi, Gergely and Peter Hardi, Substance Misuse Prevention as Corporate Social Responsibility. Substance Use and Misuse, March 2014, Vol. 49, No. 4 , Pages 352-363 (doi:10.3109/10826084.2013.841242). The article is available directly from the publisher under the following link:

This research project generated interest also among US scholars and a team from the Center for Workforce Health at ISA Group decided to cooperate with the Center. A joint publication is currently under preparation.

In May 2014, our research team was invited to present the latest research results at the 22nd Annual Meeting of the Society for Prevention Research (SPR) held in Washington DC. These annual meetings are regarded among the most important gatherings of prevention scientists, both in the United States and internationally. In recognition of the quality of the work and the relevance of the research topic, one member of the team received financial assistance from the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) in the form of a travel grant. Our research team was invited to participate in two poster sessions, the NIDA International Poster Session and the SPR Poster Session. The presented poster can be downloaded freely from here.

  • "I have been recently nominated as the Regional IT Manager for West Africa at Unilever. My CEU Business School education has been a key differentiator during an otherwise very competitive recruitment process. I would like to thank all my great peers of the 2013-14 cohort and the wonderful faculty at the B-School for the valuable learning experience I had during my time in BP."
