Principles of Responsible Management Education (PRME)

The Business School is committed to embedding the principles of ethics, responsibility and sustainability, and is a signatory of the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME).

PRME is an initiative of the United Nations Global Compact and is a platform to raise the profile of sustainability in schools around the world.

The Six Principles

  1. Purpose: We will develop the capabilities of students to be future generators of sustainable value for business and society at large and to work for an inclusive and sustainable global economy.
  2. Values: We will incorporate into our academic activities and curricula the values of global social responsibility as portrayed in international initiatives such as the United Nations Global Compact.
  3. Method: We will create educational frameworks, materials, processes and environments that enable effective learning experiences for responsible leadership.
  4. Research: We will 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.
  5. Partnership: We will interact with managers of business corporations to extend our knowledge of their challenges in meeting social and environmental responsibilities and to explore jointly effective approaches to meeting these challenges.
  6. Dialogue: We will facilitate and support dialog and debate among educators, students, business, government, consumers, media, civil society organisations and other interested groups and stakeholders on critical issues related to global social responsibility and sustainability.
