2023-24 Responsible Business and Management Student Writing Competition

It’s back! Launch of our 2023-4 Responsible Business and Management Student Writing Competition 


Our eighth Student Writing Competition will have three categories: Undergraduate, Postgraduate and Alternative Media   Once again the competition is brought to you by the PRME Chapter UK & Ireland in collaboration with the organisers at Oxford Brookes Business School. 

Our first seven years of the competition have generated many insightful and persuasive contributions - examples of our winning entries last year can be found here


Full details (a 3 page flyer) are available here. The first page of the flyer is also designed to function as a stand-alone poster. 


The competition in brief: 

  1. The competition has three categories - undergraduate essays and reports, postgraduate taught Master's level essays and reports, and an Alternative Media category open to both PG Taught and UG students. 

  2. The competition is open to a wide variety of disciplines - marketing, economics, accounting, leadership and management etc. In all cases there needs to be a clear link to the Sustainable Development Goals and/or responsible business, management and leadership themes. 

  3. It is designed to accept work already written and submitted by students at their home institution i.e. it does not require specially written essays or other artefacts. But students can also choose to develop work on a topic of their choice related to the SDGs/responsible business and management. 

  4. There are three prizes in every category, jointly sponsored by the Chapter and Oxford Brookes University: first prize (£500), second prize (£250) and third prize (£100). Finalists in all categories also receive a certificate of achievement.

  5. Entrants can be from PRME and non PRME signatory business schools - this competition is part of our outreach to the wider sector. 

  6. What’s new this year is that we explicitly permit work that has utilised AI tools. We require all entrants to declare whether (and, if so, how) AI tools have been used in their work 


If you have any questions, just get in touch with Oxford Brookes via the details on the attached flyer or directly on 

The deadline for submissions is 28th February 2024. 

We look forward to your entries!
