The United Nations Global Compact and Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) called for systemic changes in business and management education today at a high-level dinner today in Davos, Switzerland. Over 40 academic leaders and corporate executives — including deans from top business schools and Chief Executives from leading businesses — gathered for the dinner, held on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum, to discuss gaps in today’s business and management education.

The dinner also served as the launch of the 2018-2019 cycle of the PRME Champions, a group of 38 higher education institutions that commit to significant transformation in teaching, research, and partnerships underscored by the Global Goals. The UK and Ireland chapter now has seven representatives on the PRME Champions group. These include past members:

For 2018-2019, these institutions will be joined by:

The PRME Champions are intended to serve as case studies and model examples to other higher education institutions globally. The mission of the PRME Champions group is to contribute to thought and action leadership on responsible management education in the context of the United Nations sustainable development agenda. In so doing, PRME Champions commit to:

  • Work collaboratively to achieve higher levels of performance in transforming business and management education in five key areas: curricula, research, educational frameworks, sustainability-based partnerships, and thought leadership.

  • Serve the broader PRME community through active engagement with existing PRME Chapters, PRME Working Groups, Global Compact LEAD, and other global opportunities, as well as to support broader and deeper implementation of sustainability principles in the institutional context of the PRME initiative.

  • Contribute to broader UN goals and issues, particularly helping to realize the Sustainable Development Goals.

This announcement recognises the leading role that the UK and Ireland PRME Chapter plays in promoting the Principles of Responsible Management Education globally and the hard work of our member organisations.
