Principles of Responsible Management Education (PRME) was first established in 2007 at the United Nations Global Compact Leaders Summit in the presence of UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and more than 1,000 businesses, civil society, and government leaders. PRME is an offshoot from the United Nations Global Compact’s (UNGC) ten principles to encourage businesses to adopt sustainable and social policies. The PRME initiative was a natural next step for the UNGC, supporting its agenda by laying the foundations for responsible management in business education.
Under the coordination of the UN Global Compact and leading academic institutions, the PRME task force developed a set of six principles that together lay the foundation for the global platform for responsible management education.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. As an institution of higher education involved in the development of current and future managers CBS declares its willingness to progress in the implementation, within its institution, of the following principles.
