The mission of the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) initiative is to inspire and champion responsible management education, research and thought leadership globally.
The PRME are inspired by internationally accepted values such as the principles of the United Nations Global Compact. They seek to establish a process of continuous improvement among institutions of management education in order to develop a new generation of business leaders capable of managing the complex challenges faced by business and society in the 21st century.
In the current academic environment, corporate responsibility and sustainability have entered but not yet become embedded in the mainstream of business-related education. The PRME are therefore a timely global call for business schools and universities worldwide to gradually adapt their curricula, research, teaching methodologies and institutional strategies to the new business challenges and opportunities. Each progress is closely related to the six guiding principles.
The established PRME DACH Chapter, consisting of PRME Signatories in German-speaking countries (Germany-Austria-Switzerland), was officially launched at the Conference on Principles for Responsible Management Education for Germany, Switzerland and Austria, at MCI Management Center Innsbruck on February 2014, after two years of preparation. The Faculty of Economics and Business is proud to be part of the founding group and supports the initiative.
