Abstract: The aim of the present paper is to identify and comment on the existing relationship between corporate social responsibility (CSR) and the current economic crisis, by focusing on the implementation of ethics/business ethic into curricula as well as implementation of Total Responsibility Management into strategy. A number of recent trends are influencing business schools towards better teaching and accounting for the role of "business in society." The survey found, among other things, that there is a clear demand from business and students for research, education and training on business ethics issues; that teaching on the role of business responsibility is far form being "main-stream" to the economics/business curriculum of (state and private) faculties in Slovenia. Improving accreditation processes will play an important part in speeding the business (business ethics, CSR, TRM, sustainability) education community with the new roles and responsibilities they are asked to fulfil by a wide range of stakeholders (students, society, business and government). Faculties are increasingly made accountable for their own social and environmental impact. Simultaneously, this paper seeks to report on research undertaken to assess the extent to which Slovenian economics/business faculties were engaged in professional development activities focusing on the development of education for sustainability (including business ethics) for their students. Finally, research provides a base for the exploration of professional development programs that will be the most effective and efficient in facilitating education for e.g. sustainability where (business) ethics plays very important role.
