Sustainability – roundtable/discussion

On March 22, 2022 was organised the first round-table of the Department of Financial Management Metropolitan University Prague in cooperation with the professional organization the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants with title SUSTAINABILITY. The event was organized in a hybrid format in university premises. There were about 60 participants connected online and nearly 20 participants and students present personally in the room.

The programme encompassed keynote addresses both from Academia and profession.

Among the promoted speakers were Prof. dr. Rob van Tulder Business Society Management and Academic Director Partnerships Resource Centre (PrC) from the Erasmus University of Rotterdam Netherlands; Prof. Adriana Tiron-Tudor, Babeș-Bolyai University Cluj-Napoca, Romania; and Dr David John Muir from the Anglo-American University Prague. Professional speakers represented Ms Sharon Machado Head of Business Reporting Professional Insights ACCA Global London and Ms Viera Kučerová ACCA Global Prague Head of Markets Czech Republic, Slovakia & Hungary. From the home institution, there were Dr Radka MacGregor Pelikánová and assoc. prof. Irena Jindřichovska.

The professors and representatives of the profession presented current and timely topics leading to subsequent discussion. The program was very intensive and well received. The subsequent discussion will follow among participants on other platforms leading to future research and professional cooperation. We believe that this roundtable discussion is a start to a new tradition.

We believe that the next round table will bring at least the same benefit to all participants as this first one.


It was a pleasure to be at the Roundtable and I learned also from some of the other presentations (in particular from ACCA).
