HSE Graduate School of Business Has Joined the PRME Initiative (Principles for Responsible Management Education)
In June 2021, HSE Graduate School of Business joined the PRME initiative – Principles for Responsible Management Education. For GSB joining PRME constitutes a focus on applying best practice and global sustainability expertise to prepare responsible leaders of the future. By participating in PRME, GSB joins forces with 860+ leading business and management schools from more than 95 countries that are committed to advancing the core values of sustainability, responsibility, and ethics in teaching, research and thought leadership, working to achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
The Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) is a United Nations-supported initiative founded in 2007. As a platform to raise the profile of sustainability in schools around the world, PRME equips today's business students with the understanding and ability to deliver change tomorrow.
Working through Six Principles, PRME engages business and management schools to ensure they provide future leaders with the skills needed to balance economic and sustainability goals, while drawing attention to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and aligning academic institutions with the work of the UN Global Compact.
As a voluntary initiative with over 800 signatories worldwide, PRME has become the largest organised relationship between the United Nations and management-related higher education institutions. Antonio Guterres, United Nations Secretary-General: “The PRME initiative was launched to nurture responsible leaders of the future. Never has this task been more important. Bold leadership and innovative thinking are needed to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals”.
Joining the PRME initiative opens up the following opportunities for both faculty and students of the HSE Graduate School of Business:
- Engaging with a global community of practice on Responsible Management Education (RME) and thought leadership, including cross-regional knowledge exchange;
- Attracting students to an existing global network of business schools with more than 3 million enrolled students and a large number of sustainably-minded peers and faculty;
